Looking at my engine I have two belts, the one large belt connecting the Waterpump and Power Steering pumps and the smaller belt connecting from the waterpump to the alternator. Both belts squeal starting from the large belt that then stops transfering over smaller serpentine belt. The belts are new and I think they've just stretched a bit(under 9 months old) I've checked with a straight ruler and everything is aligned nicely. I've figured out how to tighten the alternators belt but the large waterpump/power steering belt I can't figure out. From examining the setup it looks as if the Powersteering pump needs to be adjusted to make the belt tight. I found one bolt that was loose that appears to be where it's tightened to hold it in the new position but I can't make the pump move in any direction. Is their another bolt that needs to be loosened? Their is one bolt almost opposite the adjusting bolt but it's hidden behind the pulley and I can't see how it would be used to tighten the pump as the belt and pulley would need to be removed to gain access there isn't even holes through the pulley to access it. A picture would be great. The car is a 1991 pontiac grand am LE 2.5L
have the same problem?
