If the hose clamps onto the rack & pinion,get a new clamp (replace the hose too,its probably worn)Reinstall it.fill the p/s resovoir,start the car (when the fluid gets low,add more fluid)It will make moaning noises.Just make sure the new hose isnt leaking.Turn the steering wheel back & forth a few times,top off the fluid,turn the wheel again,you should be ok.If the hose bolts on to the pump,you will need to change the hose with a wrench.(fluid replacement is the same way.

Sounds like the adjustment may not be correct on the power steering belt, with the tension not being enough, after you replaced the belt ?
Try giving it a little more tension, and go from there.
Hope I have been of help.
Good Luck !
