2006 dodge stratus

Asked by Aug 15, 2017 at 01:53 PM about the 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT we recently
changed the alternator and followed instructions
on tightening the belt. Ever since there has been
squeaking I'm assuming from the belt. And car is
pulling to the right have checked air pressure and
all is good. Also passenger front tire had to be
replaced as a result of rubbing on something from
the inside. Replacing the tire stopped the play in
the steering wheel 4 a short while now the play has
returned. The belt squeaks when car is initially
started and sometimes goes away but when
steering wheel is turned all the way right or left
there is a short squeak. I am looking at a lot of
forums and majority says sway bar. But what
would make a huge hole in my tire the same size
as the Bolt & Nut right above it and how do I fix the
play in the steering wheel? I know it has to do with
something we did or did not do while changing the
alternator I have never had any kind of squeaks or
thuds before changing alternator.  Thanks
