On the back side of your poer stearing bow the is a nut you have to loosen. It will take a 15mm wrench . Just loosen it off a couple of turn and th loosen the bolt you see on the top of your bracket. It will drop the power stearing pump down so you can get the belt on. Then tighten the bolt back up and it will tighten the belt. Make sure you have about a quarter inch of play in ya belt after tighting it. Then last but ot least tighten the nut back up and your ready to go.

SOURCE: Both Serpentine belts

The power steering pump will have a tensioner you need to loosen. Then for the other belt. There is a tensioner located on the pass side. You can see it if you look down the pass side of the engine.

SOURCE: how do i get the power steering belt off so i can

chryslers usualy use a spring loaded belt tensioner (Idle pulley) first put a long wrench on the nut/Bolt head holding the pulley on and pull it to loosten,
the bolt is left handed, so if it unscrews turn the other way
If this doesn't work look for a bolt in the block and a curved slot this has to be loostened, some have this lock bolt, some do not, so try twisting the pulley bolt first
If youv'e got a very long pull handle for your socket use it, the bolt's spring is very strong, if not, slip a length of pipr over your normal socket wrench
Should be easy once the pulley slacks off,
be careful of that spring, loosten your grip and it'l smack you a good one

SOURCE: wine in power steering, I put in new fan belt,

The wine will be there until the fluid bleeds out all the air.If it does not,then have the power steering pump replaced again,and be sure to flush the system with a good power steering flush.But the remanufatured pump is most likely the problem.The pump had a flaw that the rebuilder didn`t see.Do make sure the lines are not kinked anywhere.

How do you change a power steering belt

Loosen the bolts that attach the power steering pump to the bracket. then push the pump down. this should make the belt loose enough to get off. then put the new belt on. take a pry bar and stick between the motor and the power steering pump through the top. push on the pry bar to raise the power steering pump and tighten the belt. while pushing on the pry bar to keep tension on the belt tighten the bolts that you loosened and you've changed your power steering belt. this can be done by one person, but it's a lot easier with two.

I think I would have an experienced mechanic properly replace the power steering pump, replace the tensioner, then put it back together with a new serpentine belt.

I have a squealing noise when the truck is running Worse when you turn the wheels. We just replaced the Power steering pump...Please Help

Suggest it may be power steering fluid, has made it's way on the power steering belt, causing belt slippage, and perhaps glazing the power steering belt. Even if a new one was put on. If so, the belt may need to be changed, also the pulleys need to be cleaned. Make sure those pulleys aren't glazed, by the belt slipping over them.

It could also be that the belt isn't tight enough, and/or worn out.
Make sure the hoses, going from the power steering pump to the steering box, are not leaking, at the back of the pump housing.
