2005 Scion xB Base 4 Cyl 1.5L
Steering & Suspension
has broken 2 power steering belts in 4 weeks
pump shaft has about 3/16 in end play.....is this too much and a potential cause for belt breakage?
Look at belts carefully and see if any smooth glazing on belt and if a break or a tear. You could have a pulley freezing up sporadically getting ready to go out.
