Most likely the belt and pulleys are shiny if you look at them, replace the belt, while you have the belt off try and clean the glaze off the pulley groves, this will make the new belt "grip" better and avoid slipage.

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.

All the adjustments are made at the alternator.You need to loosen the top and bottom bolt and if has an adjuster behind the alternators top bolt then that needs to be backed off as well.Slide the alternator towards the block{may need to loosen the alternator bracket bolt at the head].Remove the belt and put on the new one .Adjust the belt until ther is about a 1/2" of play in it and test run,if it squeals after start up tighten it some more until the sqealing stops.
