Best Answer

You don't. Always replace worn belts.

Belts don't come off without a reason. Spin each pulley by hand checking for tightness, noise, looseness to help tip off the troubled area. I hardly ever see a belt break or come off due to wear or belt condition.

How much will it cost to fix the power steering noise?

This can range from zero to $80. The most common power steering noise is due to the belt slipping when turning. If the blet has not been slipping very much, it simply requires tightening the belt which can be done for no cost if you have the proper wrench size to loosen and tighten the assembly. If the belt is damaged, it will need to be replaced and can require more lablr ans other belts may have to be removed to install the new belt. Also, some power steering units use 2 belts. This can increase the cost to as much as $80 for labor and new belts.

When the power steering pump goes does the battery light come on on a mini cooper s?

Sounds like youve broken a belt. Battery light comes on when the battery is no being charged. Power steering stops when the power steering pump is not being driven. I dont know about on a mini cooper s but a lot of cars have 1 belt driving both of these things. Chekc under your bonnet, you will likely have some broken bits of belt hanging around and a few bare wheel/pulley type things. Your car will continue to run (minus power steering) untill the battery dies (couple hundred K's max, likely much less) so head straight to a garage. Its a routine fix that shouldnt take more than an hour or so.
