SOURCE: power steering noise

The belt is almost assuredly to tight and needs to be loosened just a hair. It is hard sometimes to get the tension just right. Try looseneing it a bit and hopefully that will help. I have had the same problem in the past.

SOURCE: Replacing 2 belts on a 2000 Mazda Protege

I recommend that you go to any Auto Parts store and by a repair user manual for your 2000 Mazda Protege.  They have pictures and arrows and stuff that you will need to do the whole job.  The non-Mazda version will cost approximately $15.00.
Because of the tensioner that may come off when while you are doing these belt changes, it is too complicated to talk you through this.
But with the manual, I am confident you can change them.

SOURCE: sounds like a loose belt.

Most surpentine belts have an atomatic tensoner. I have had 2 fail on different cars and it is a simple fix, both of them required removal of one bolt.

SOURCE: squeeling belt, have replaced idler pulley,

Try using a very small spray of silicone spray on the belt next time you're hearing the squeal. If it temporarily stops, replace the belt. Check the p/s fluid level, if it's low it could cause the pump to make noise. Also if it's low, you have a leak, check all lines, connections and pull back the bellows boots on the p/s rack (if rack and pinion). Finally, pick yourself up a mechanic's stethescope, good tool for diagnosing accesory noises. Listen to all components while duplicating the noise.

yes it is the serpentine belt and there is only one and you need to make sure it is on properly and that it is on the idle tensioner pully andd you have to loosen the tensioner to put the belt on and tighten it to tighten the belt look for a belt schematic on the engine compartment area of your car near the front or sodes on the upper outer area where the hood comes opver the comparment

this peice belongs to your power steering pulley its a plastic o\piece that over time brakes off you can either call your dealer and see if its covered by your warranty because its has to be replaced the pats that the plastic belongs on is top pulley you 'll notice powersteering wheel hard to steer and squeeling you must replace part or adjust it so its holding pulley tight itshas grooves in it 2 as a matter of fact if you keep using this pulley with broken plastic it could brake your belt

Power steering squeel

This is not an unusual problem with power steering and is most frequently caused by a worn belt on the power steering pump. Check the belt and replace if needed. Also check the power steering fluid level and top it off.

How do I replace the alternator belt on the 95 mazda mpv 6 cylinder van ?

Locate the alternator, there should be a adjustment bolt on top, loosen it so the alternator can slide to get the belt loose, remove the belt, put the new one the same way as the old one was, then use a bracket or strong screwdriver to slide the alternator back to make the belt tight again, belt should not bend more then 0,5 cm or 1/4 of the inch when pressed with fingers, tighten the bolt on the adjustment.
