You have to remove the power steering belt and the AC belt to remove the alternator belt.
There are two different belts a 96 SEPHIA requires. They are turned by a double pully wheel. The alternator and water pump belt is the rear one. The alternator adjusts with a 9 or 10 MM box wrench. The air and power steering is the front. It is adjusted with AC compressor.
According to the online manual (www.kiatechinfo.com) it routes over the drive pulley, water pump pulley, and the alternator generator.To put on the alternator belt, you'll have to take off the power steering belt as well, which routes from the drive pulley to the a/c pulley, and then up to the power steering.You'll likely have a hard time getting the power steering belt off and back on. Check the online manual for locations of pivot bolts, adjusting bolts, and locknuts for both the power steering belt and the alternator, as well as a routing diagram for each.
the alternator belt is the one all the way in the back. You have to loosen the power steering pump, A/C idler pulley, and then loosen the alternator.
The power steering reservoir is underneath the alternator by the firewall.
Check that the alternator and the power steering don't work of the same belt.
For most cars there is a separate pulley groove and belt for the alternator and power steering. That way if your alternator belt breaks you could still steer the vehicle.
AnswerIts on the right hand side where the alternator is at. Look down, and you will notice a cap that says "POWER STEERING" on it.
Below the alternator
I would love to help you but i have a 2000 sephia, also check our website www.streetkiaz.com, I am sure we can help you there. :)
which one the power steering,alternator,crank or a/c,crank?
The power steering is driven by the serpentine belt which must be changed by releasing the tensioner, located below the alternator. The only other belt is for the A/C compressor.
The power steering unit and the alternator are both driven by the serpentine belt. Loosen the tensioner pulley and the serpentine belt will become loose. Put the new serpentine belt on and tighten the tensioner pulley.

The Power Steering Pump & Reservoir are below the Alternator, by the Firewall, on the Passenger's Side.....
Bent shaft, replace PS pump
First you back off the stud at the top of the alternator, than at the back of the alternator there is an adjuster tensioner bolt has to be loosened, then you need to loosen the power steering pump (3 bolts), then remove power steering belt, then remove alternator belt, then to install new belt do the same except in reverse order.... (found out the hard way.)
Not a serpentine on mine. Mine is the 2.0L and it has 2 multi-groove belts. One for aircon/power steering other for alternator. Not a serpentine on mine. Mine is the 2.0L and it has 2 multi-groove belts. One for aircon/power steering other for alternator.
The power steering pump belt is located on the drivers side of the car. It runs parralell to the alternator / a/c belt, right above it. There is a pulley just above your alternator, the belt on this pulley is your power steering pump belt.
it is under the alternator

No you dont need to remove the power steering pump to get at the bolts. if you go directly down from the very bottom of the pully on the power steering pump the bolt holding the top of the alternator should be right there. all you have to do is remove it and the alternator should come out.
On the power steering pump. From the left side of the car look down below the alternator near the firewall.
