My blower belt is manually tensioned so I usually put a new belt on, do it up to the correct tension (just tell by feel nowadays...). Then drive it for 100km or so and check the tension, usually needs tightening a bit...

This might be a stupid reply but...

Dont do them up to tight, or else you will hear funny noises in the engine bay until the belt snaps, and then yeah... not good.
