Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

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

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.
