Put a new power steering belt on not to long ago, was fine for about 6 months or so. Now, whenever i steer and there is a hint of torque on the pump she squeals and the wheel is really jerky.

Is this just a loose belt? What else could it be? Dont know too much about the power steering rack.... Perhaps the belt gained some elasticity and stretched out over time?

Damn i hate this noise, embarrassing!

Where is the PS belt?
I had a brief look under my hood today and I could only see the belt on the alternator.. I was going to look closer but I just parked and the engine was hot.
