1st take and untighten the power steering bolt from the back it will be facing the drive side. now take and untighten the tension bolt be careful not to snap it. then get a 9/16 open end wench and put it on the power steering bolt form the front it is a tight to get to once you have it on push down on it and the belt will come off
The only thing I could think of that would cause that is if the compressor is not mounted straight or if it is not tight. Could be something with the bracket holding the compressor. It should be wearing out the belt too.
Some modern cars have an electrically driven pump to supply high pressure oil to operate the power steering. However, most cars have an oil pump for the steering which is turned by a belt from the crankshaft pulley. If the belt is loose or slipping, heavy steering will be the result, especially noticable at low speeds. Check belt for tightness, and check oil level is not low, possibly due to a leak?
your vehicle has a known steering problem.
