You can try to retighten it, but tbh it's no point.

Its probably got stretched because of a weak/flat battery.

Best thing, is to get a new battery and then fit the new belt, or get yourself an electronic charger, and leave that on when your not using the car for long periods.

This is a common problem with most GTR's.

I know I'm gonna sound dumb by asking this, but it's never stopped me in the past :D Why does a weak/flat battery lead to a stretched belt??

Because your putting load on the alternator when the battery is weak/flat and hence on the belt.

Rub the inside of the belt with fairy liquid, this cleans up the rubber, and makes it grippier.
What ever you do, don't over tighten the belt, as your water pump will fail soon after.

Applied Chemical used to make an aerosol product called belt-grip. I haven't seen any for a few years but it could be the saviour of many a RB water pump.
