Power steering belt?

There is a belt that is connected to the power steering pump and then to something else. This thing is slipping like mad, and every time i turn the wheel i hear it slipping around. What is this, and how do i deal with this problem? Should i tighten it, and if so how do i tighten it?

Remeber im new to this whole porsche thing, oh yeah i fixed the horn. It beeps really loud now.

there is a small rod connecting to the bottom of the pump. this is the rod that you use to tighten the belt. it called an adjusting strut. if you tighten it it should stop squeeling. (whahoo! i can answer a question!)

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

Just a bit more detail:

There are locking nuts on the adjusting screws. These are right and left threads. Clean off the exposed threads with carb or brake cleaner and you will see which way to turn the nuts and strut body.

You have to loosen the bolts at each end of the strut before you change it's length-tension. Tighten them after you adjust the strut and lock the jam nuts.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?

If you go this far, you should probably consider replacing the belt with a new one. This will give you the best insurance against problems for some time to come.
