SOURCE: how do i remove a power steering pump on my 2003

I presume your Santa Fe sports the 3.5 liter V6 engine? If it's got the NUT, it's at the front & there's a nut stud. If it's got the BOLT, it's accessed from the opposite (anterior) side using a long, long extension. If you have a vehicle hoist/lift, you can easily see it. If you're on your back with the vehicle on jack stands, it's much more difficult to see the 14mm bolt between the exhaust flex pipe and heat shield of the exhaust manifold at the right hand side of the engine.
Say you're directly beneath the engine oil pan, move toward the transmission and look upward and forward between the 1:00 and 2:00 oclock positions of the engine (toward the power steering pump) - 14mm bolt

SOURCE: I am trying to change

I would replace the steering pump belt at the same time you do the alternator belt (buy both).
To take off the alternator belt .
First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp(or a block fuse under the hood). Facing the back of the automobile , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley (right side of pump mount), the nut holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley nut loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust/take off the steering pump belt.

How do I replace fan belt on 1983 Chevy pickup

Depends on which belt..if it's the alternator belt, out's just a matter of loosening 2 bolts on alternator, sliding alternator towards center of engine and removing belt. Installation is the reverse.

check with volt meter. 12 volts with engine off. Should be 14 volts with engine running if alternator is working.
First, clean battery posts and cable ends. Then check owner manual for fuse locations and blown fuses. There is a large 100 amp fuse in box under hood.

Looks like 3 bolts. please rate when done

I need a Diagram on how to install the altinator

There is no diagram. You un-plug/unbolt the wires, unbolt the alternator and remove it. You bolt the new one in, tension the belt and attach the wires. Presto ... you are done. Should take about one hour start to finish.

I just replace my alternator and the belt isnt tight enough where can i find the belt tensioner bolt

you need to remove the passenger front wheel. remove the plastic cover to expose the tensioner/idler pulley, loosen do not remove the pulley nut i believe its a 14mm socket. then underneath the backside of the pulley, right above the oil filter there is another 14mm bolt. that lower bult is your adjustment, tension as needed :)

Aloud squeal.

You need to tighten the altinator belt..
It squeels and falls off because it is too loose..
Losten the two bolt a bit on the altinator so it will move..
Put the belt on - loose is ok right now..
Use a very large scewdriver or a crowbar - find leverage - to push on the altinator in the derection that tightens the belt..
Once you have some good force on it - keep the force on it as you tighten the bolts..

This will take care of the problem.. ;o)
