You have to get to it from under the car. Remove the plastic cover piece. There are 5 bolts that need to be loosed to tighten the belt. The bolt at the top of the bracket, the two pivot bolts going into the pump, 1 bolt that is up in the rear bracket of the pump, (bracket bolts to the block) and the bolt that holds the tensioning adjusting bolt on the front of the pump bracket. Turning the long bolt adjusts the position of the pump. All bolts should be 13mm head bolts. The "hidden" bolt on the back bracket xan be reached by using a deep well 13mm socket and a 3 inch extension. The others with a wrench or socket.

Loud noise when turning steering wheel, like belt slipping. something to do with power steering i suspect.


Try to look into the fluid level of the power steering pump to make sure it has sufficient fluid.
If the belt is slipping, the power steering won't function very well.

Where is the power steering located on 2006 vw jetta


Generally all power steering systems are pulley driven.So they are mostly located near your serpentine belt.The resevoir may be located right w/it or may have a line that locates it away from the engine-usually near the battery on VWs.Hope this helps.

Daughter's 1999 Jetta; smelled burnt rubber when leaving work last week. Car ran fine. Yesterday, started squealing (sounded like belt slipping) when started. Later in day, she turned car off and sat with...


It sounds like the alternator belt or the alternator is going bad. The squealing sound was probably the alternator belt. the alternator belt might need to get tightened or replaced or you may need a new alternator. The alternator keeps the battery charged. When the alternator goes bad the battery can not be recharged. You also should keep the power steering fluid up to par or the power steering will go bad on you.

Hi there, I have a 1990 Volkswagen Jetta Flair 2. I've had the car for about a year now and overall it's been an excellent car for it's age. However, there's always something that needs to be fixed and lately I've had throttle response problems. I do not have any mechanical backround, so I will describe it as best as I can. For one, it seems apparent this is an issue when the engine is cold (or not sitting in the sun all day). I will put the foot down, and it won't respond until it gets to about 3000rpm (right around when I'm thinking about changing gears), and then it rocket ships forward. Before it finally responds, there's a lot of shaking going on in the engine bay. It doesn't sound pleasant either. I took it in for an oil change, and they put fuel injector in it and it seemed to be a temporary solution. Whatever the case, there's a poor connection between me putting the throttle down and the car responding to the action. I do rev it up before I get going, but it's kind of futile. So as a result, I have a tendency to stall in first gear at low speeds as the gas doesn't react when I want it to, and the clutch is usually released by that point. After about 5-10 minutes of constant driving, it will accelerate smoothly. If you can point me in the right direction, whether it's "fuel" related, or it's some sort of heat sensor (I have no idea what I'm talking about), let me know if you've had similar experiences. All my repairs have cost me less than a 100 each time, I want to keep it that way.
