SOURCE: power steering belt removal
You need to loosen the large mounting bolt at the base of the power steering pump as well as the tension adjusting bolt on top of the unit that is attached to the slotted arm. You may need to use of a large pry bar to gently force the pump inwards to gain enough slack to remove the belt.

SOURCE: Odometer and belt tensioner
I have a 92 Dynasty also and I had a problem with it throwing the belt when it rained. After having the belt put back on twice, and when it popped off the 3rd time just leaving the repair shop, I took it back in. The mechanic told me that it had to be the tensioner. I had it replaced and had a new belt also. I have never had a problem since.
The odometer problem, mine just quit working yesterday at 119xxx, so I am looking for a solution for that myself.

Are you sure you are looking at the belt that is squealing? Usually the alternator belt squeals when first starting engine, PS belt will squeal when turning the steering wheel all the way right or left. It the tensioner is maxed out, either the belt is stretched, worn out, or way overtightened.

how many belts are on your engine?
And never,never use belt dressing or any spray on a rubber belt!
If you have more than 1 serp belt that drives every thing,remove the power steering belt to verify its that belt.Take a wire brush and clean the grooves on the pulleys and get that belt dressing of too,install new belt and noise will be gone.

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.
