noise coming from p/s belt

just wondering, does the power steering belt, or other accessory belts, squeal if its too tight or just too loose? i can hear noise coming from the engine bay when i drive, extremely hard to hear, but i can. the belt would squeak a tiny bit when cold, so i tightened it a bit, and now it squeaks more. i only moved the p/s pump up by less than a centimeter. any ideas?
thanks again.

Yes, generally, you would hear some squeal. Check your Haynes or Helms manual for proper belt deflection. I wouldn’t tighten it too much if I were you. You will wear out the pulley bearings and the belt.



mine doesn the same i havent adjusted yet but i think my belt is old and cracking.

check your fluid, same symptoms I had.
