You will have to do this from under the vehicle first lossen the pump bolts then use a pry bar to push the pump out to put tension on the belt then tighten the pump bolts (be careful not to get the pump crooked)

Kia sportage 2003 power steering belt


There should be two bolts to loosen; one at the top front of the pump, the other at the rear of the pump running through the bracket. Loosen them and pull the power steering pump to take out the slack. DO NOT pry on the pump or you will damage it. when you have the slack out of the belt tighten the front bolt and then the rear one.
