    The power steering pump belt is slipping and very noisy if i turn the
    steering near it's limit. I replaced the belt two times with different
    models, and it's already there. The belt is very tight, and i use a
    belt conditionner, the problem is lighter but still there. I verified
    the shaft of the pump and it turns freely so the pump seems to be in
    good condition. What else could cause that? Is there a filter on the
    system? Is it possible that the steering rack is the source of this

    Have you checked the water pump/alternator belt. The power steering is
    driven by the water pump, so a loose water pump belt could be (and usually
    is) the culprit.

    I also recommend against the use of belt dressing and conditioners. They
    tend to create more noise and problems than they solve. You may need to
    clean the pulleys off and replace the belt again.

    Thanks for the tip, the problem was effectively the water pump/
    alternator belt.
