Default quick 09 power steering belt question

I've read through some of the threads on changing the power steering belt. Just wondering if i should go about it by taking the right tire and wheel well off. Trying to help my mother save some money
thanks in advance for any help you have to offer.

Yes pull the right front wheel and the splash shield, then the belt is accessible.

First, the PT doesn't have a "power steering" belt. The alternator is the only equipment that has it's own belt. Everything else is run by the single serpentine belt. Yes you can do it your self and by taking the passenger side wheel and inner fender off you can gain all the access you need to change the belt.

Here is a picture of the belt route. The #1 is pointing to the belt tensioner which has to be moved to slacken the belt to it will come off.

Maybe it's too late, but taking the right head light off, makes the job a lot easier.
