1976 R107 Power Streering Belts

Can anyone suggest how to go about tightening the power steering belts? There is a awful squeal at 4K rpms even with the alternator belt off, AC belt off, and the air pump belt off. I see the three bolts and it appears the bottom one can be adjusted but with the other two bolts on opposite sides how is this possible? Thanks.

The group over in the R107 section will be your best resource for your car. They are very knowledgeable.

in that section try searching for your issue, I'd think it has been addressed many times before there.

It also works well to use google to search, it will often pull up all the forum answers there.
