hello

i know its normal starting a car in -25c i should hear belt noise for a ten years old car but the noise become higher and higher specially today when i turn the steering wheel the sound goes up ..
after the car warm up for at least 5 min in parking and 5 min. on the road the sound disappear
i think they are the 2 belts they need to be changed but how i know if it need something else like Power steering pump pulley maybe or the pump or could be nothing at all and this normal
thx

Press the belt with your finger, and watch how it flexes, should not "bend" that much, if it bends, then you can adjust it, make sure what kind of pulley adjuster you have, in my car you need to loosen a bolt before you can adjust the tension... after the adjustment, lock in place with the bolt...., you can do it, it is easy.
