    Has anyone had a problem with their power steering pump making a lot of
    noise and needing replacement. I just changed the belt on ours as it was
    showing signs of wear and after getting it on, and taking it for a test
    drive it made a groaning noise as if the fluid was low. I checked the
    fluid and it was okay. I was wondering if I got the new belt too tight?
    I loosened it and it still is making the noise, maybe not quite as bad.
    After having my wife restart the car as I watched the pulley, the pulley
    started to stop and their is a little play if I try to move it in and
    out. Does this sound like the pump needs replaced? How tight is this
    belt supposed to be? Is this a hard job replacing this pump? Is there
    any other issues to be concerned about?
