Then they need to check the pulley alignment between the power steering pump and the crank. There is a service bulletin on this that if you have a belt noise, you need to check the alignment with these 2 pulleys with a straight edge and if off, the power steering pump needs to be loosened and realigned then tightened back up. Then the belt will need to be replaced and the auto belt tensioner.

If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!
