replace belt and adjust properly.

Check the power steering fluid. If it looks foamy, you are getting air in the fluid somehow. If you just did the belts or adjusted them you may have put a strain on the power steering hose connection where the belt guard bolts on to causing it to pull a bit and let air in. I'm assuming its the same design as my 2000 legacy. I tightened it up and changed the fluid (you have to once air gets in) and the noise was gone. Hope this helps
