Or is-it rather done by tightening the power steering pulley itself (how do I do that?)
This is because my car makes a loud screech if I turn my Steering close to full lock either left or right. The problem is worse in cold mornings, it will screech as soon as I turn my steering even slightly.
My car is a 1996 DX, 1.6L engine, manual transmission with AC

I had this screaming PS pump issue for months. Changed all the belts twice and the PS pump and the pulley.
Myself and at least 2 other people, have fixed the screaming power steering issue, by tensioning the alternator. The pulley that the alternator belt attaches too, must be in balance along with the other belt, other wise the pull on one another and cause screaming.
is that it?
For instance, on my car the belt can squeal on it's on but it's more noticeable when the fan and/or lights are on, which is straining the alternator. There aren't two different belts for the Delco and Denso alternators are there?
Power steering belt tension should be 100-150
Alternator belt tension should be 175 +/- 5
