2001 Accent 1.6, A/T. Just replaced alternator myself. Checked and adjusted all three belts; all seem tight. Now I have a belt squeal. P/S fluid is full. When car starts there is no squeal. 15 seconds later chirp starts. A few seconds later squeal is constant and remains throughout entire ride - except when I make a turn. During any turn squeal goes away, then comes right back.
Can anyone help me fix this squeal?

Thank you.

Sometime the screen at the bottom of the PS fluid reservoir gets clogged. You have to empty the container and clean the screen at the bottom.

If you have a flat ribbed belt see how much twist you can get on it at the longest stretch of the belt. If it's properly tightened you should not be able to get much more than a 1/4 twist or about 45*. If a ribbed belt has chunks of the ribs missing it needs replaced, cracks are ok.
