Have you inspected to see if the belt is tight? or old and dry cracked?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. I'm just a stupid white guy that knows nothing. I'll check it out.
What kind of money you think to replace belt ?
Expert:  scionking replied 1 year ago.

About $130 at most shops, may be cheaper. Whiny noise is probably belt slipping on power steering pulley, if this pulley doesn't turn there will not be any power steering.
