Power steering.

Post by Aussyroo59 » Thu Aug 29, 2019 10:24 am

I changed the power steering belt the other day. Alternator pulley seems out of alignment using straight edge. After checking to be sure pulleys are tight l mustve overtightened th belt a little. Terrible groaning & ps fluid spewing from top of reservoir. Any knowledge will be helpful. Car is 2000 outback limited.

Power steering is fine now, so the difficult issue now is how to align the power steering & alternator pulleys. Thanks in advance.

How far out of alignment is the alternator? Are we talking two or three mm, or more than 5mm?

Standard alternator or has it been replaced recently?
