There is a squealing noise under my hood, almost like chipmunks, which i first thought was a belt. But they look alright and are tight, so my next thoughts were power steering or water pump. I was thinking of removing the power steering belt to see if it stops, thereby pronouncing the p/s pump the culprit. any other thoughts?

With the engine running, turn on your head lights. If the sound gets worse, your alternator bearings are shot.

A cheap easy test! *G*
