If it happens mainly when your car is cold, it is a common symptom known as "morning sickness" or "black rack disease". Check your power steering fluid to see if it has become discoloured. If so, try flushing the system and replace the fluid with an approved power steering fluid. If this does not solve the problem, you may need to replace the rack and pinion steering unit.

Then you don't take anything off. There will be a spring loaded idler that tensions the serpentine belt. Take a socket or long 12 point wrench and attach to the center bolt of the tensioner, then rotate the idler wheel away from the belt, take the belt off. Slowly release the spring tension of the idler.
The 2nd belt should be set up the same way.

I see this is a two part question...
In replacing the alternator, there is no reason at all to be messing with the pulley on the power steering. That pulley is pressed on and though you could remove it with a puller it is far more difficult to re-install without the proper tools. (it is not hammered on). Power steering pulleys don't just fall off. They are so tightly pressed onto the shaft that they don't even require a retaining bolt to hold them on.
Without the benefit of being able to examine it myself, I'd have to guess that either you originally had a mis-match of pulley to pulley shaft and the pulley was sliding on the shaft (so remote a concept that you may be hit by a meteorite if you buy that) Or someone removed it for an unknown reason and did not properly re-install it.

My 1999 dodge Intrepid makes a loud whining noise (like a power steering pump) any time it is running... Any ideas on what it could be?


if the winning noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel, it is the power steering pump.
99 to 04 intrepids have a serpintine belt with a self tightner.what i did with mine is **** the old power steering fluid out with a shop vac.replaced half with new fluid and top up with a transmission/power steering fluid additive.the noise went away after a couple of days.

Replacing alternator in a 2001 Dodge Intrepid


the easiest way is going to first be to remove the serpentine belt which requires you to loosen the nut on the end of the idler pulley just above the alternator, then behind the pulley is a bolt with a 13mm head on it that you will want to loosen after the pulley is loose to relieve tension off the belt. Remove the belt. Next make sure you remove the battery cables to ensure you dont fry yourself to the car when unhooking the electrical connections from the alternator, your battery is located on the passenger side, down behind and underneath the headlight. Then go under the car and remove the black plastic clips that hold the splash shield up under the bumper. After this the alternator becomes as accesible as it can be, remove it from the bottom. Thanks for using fixya!!

Can't fint out how to change belts


The alternator and power steering belt should have been removed first, but here is the way to get it off. The belt, the idler is adjustable - loosen locknut on the small pulley above the alternator, at top left of alternator, The bolt on the outside of pulley, behind the pulley top left, is an adjuster bolt, turn til you can slide belt off easily; hoped this helped
