Hello Check if you can move the belt with your hand. If you can't, see if you can test the tension just by pressing down on the belt. It shouldn't have too much play like 3 cm OR 1.2inch would be considered too much play (depending on the length) and the tensioner(s) might not be properly set. If you had this done by the dealer or an independent garage then i would take the vehicle back and complain and ask for a check-up/repair of the belt and or tensioner. Remember the cam belt is as important to your motor as having a car is to you. Hope this helps

are you talking timeing belt or serpientene belt on outside of engine.
