My alternator belt was rattling a while back and belt was starting to squeak so i replaced the lot and all was well for 2 weeks.

Recently the belt has started to sqeak again when on full lock and when steering at slow speeds feels almost juddery!

Could this be a knackered power steering pump or could it be any of the other pulleys on this belt causing it, and more to the point how do you tell?

HELP [brick]

when I had mine done late last year, the guy asked me which pulley I wanted changing as there are apparently more than one. one is with the tensioner but there is a second which he said he has had to replace on a couple of golfs recently after changing the tensioner and having the same problem as you - still noisy. changed this other pulley and sorted.

I have heard of the alternator pulleys needing to be changed before i was just wondering it this could be specific to the power steeringm pump pulley?

I guess if i whip the belt off and give all the pulleys a spin and a wobble it should tell me?
