Idler arm for power steering pump question

Check your level. Wife's e53 would squeal like a pig when cold if the ps fluid was just a little low.

Everything but the AC is driven from the same belt. Unless your tensioner is shot it's very unlikely to slip in the pulley, I've always attributed the sound to something internal but it does sound like a slipping belt.

When you release tension, does the tensioner really snug the belt? It should be very tight.

Also confirm the routing path is correct I have a feeling it might be possible to have more than one solution of how it's wound.
