Has anyone had this problem before? I'm wondering if the power steering pulley has moved inward causing the belt to hit the A/C bracket bolt.

======================
carefully inspect the waterpump bolts neat the crankshaft pulley -

a while ago - there was another member having a similar belt problem -

if I remember correctly - his problem was a waterpump bolt had backed out -
and was contacting the inside edge of the belt -

I don't recall that thread, but can't imagine what else would cause a bolt to contact the belt.

I figured it out after basscat said someone had a similar problem and it was a backed out bolt
on his waterpump. Same issue here but my backed out bolt was the the furthest bolt on the right on the timing chain cover. That is why I thought the power steering pulley had moved. I removed the bolt, cleaned it with a wire brush and sprayed it with PB Blaster along with the hole it goes into and re-installed. Everything is fine now. Thanks to everyone that commented.
