How do you adjust the belt for power steering on a 1986 Buick Regal if you do not see a pivot or slot for adjustment?

If you have a serpentine belt (this belt is flat on one side and has 6 little "v's" on the other side about 1 1/4" wide) then there should be an "Idler" pulley that is internally spring loaded that puts the required tension on the belt, thus there is no "adjustment". But if this pulley is defective it must be replaced.

If yours has a single big "V" belt (about 1/2" wide) then the "Adjustment" usually consists of loosening the alternator and "biasing" it to tighten the belt then securing it again.

There is no adjustment of the pump. You can adjust belt tension, by loosing and adjusting tension with the bolts holding it in place, but that is all.

You have to remove the steering wheel, and it requires special tools.

The power steering dipstick is made into the fluid filler cap. The power steering unit is on the front of the motor, and the cap is right on the top of it.

It is at the back of the engine on the pass side. It is under the alternator, follow the serpentine belt to the power steering pump.

Okay, it took me about 10 minutes but I found it. I have a 1994 Buick Regal & my oil filter is on the back passenger side of the engine, about 3/4 of the way down, below the power steering box. I hope that helps! On my 1991 Buick Regal the oil filter is located under the power steering pump which you access through the passenger wheel well to remove/add the filter.

You can bypass the power steering pump pulley in your 1993 Buick regal 3.8 liter engine. Measure the distance around the other pulleys, without the power steering pump pulley. Take the measurement to your local auto-parts stores and ask for a belt of that measurement.
