Re: Power Steering belt falling...

something is not 'true', being maybe the power steering pulley, worn idler bearings or a wobbling harmonic balancer.. Check all the pulleys are aligned and spin true and freely

Re: Power Steering belt falling...

MIne used to do it a lot I couldn't find anything wrong with the pulleys either and eventually it was replacing the belt that fixed it. Seems it was just a bit too worn to grip well enough at high revs with the wheels turned
Oh well, single belt setup fixed it better lol
