    unfortunately u cant adjust the tension of the aux belt on the mk4

    its more than likely that your tensioner has become worn.

    Theres a few on ebay at various prices but this is the cheapest I could find and its also on a submit an offer listing....

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/90571758-DRIVE...2em118Q2el1247

    takes about 2mins to replace.

    Ring spanner on tensioner bolt - swing it back to allow the belt to be removed... reach up thru wheel arch - preferrably remove wheel, remove bolt securing it to block - replace and whack belt back on.

    Might be an idea to replace the belt whilst ur at it - as it only costs about £13 from the main dealers.
