    Belt going? Hopefully an easy fix

    OK, so I've got the V up and running good... or so I thought. I got in this afternoon and there was a squeaky belt - didn't think anything of it because it was raining the night before.

    But, I can hear a difference when I would turn the wheel - both when stopped and driving. It sounds like it's straining something, but there is no difference in drive quality. I'm thinking it's a belt, but not entirely sure.

    I turned the car on later on today, and no squeals. Any suggestions as to what it could be?

    I would check the condition of the power steering fluid. If it looks either burnt brown (temperature induced deterioration) or milky (moisture) I would change it. I would also change the belt if has much age or mileage. Visual inspection of serpentine belts is problematic.

    To add on to this... I got my tires put on today and they told (and showed) me my pressure line hose is leaking - not a lot, but it's starting to go. How hard is this to replace?
