BMW E36 Power Steering Sounds

Help Please!!
I have m50b20 engine in my e36...And I started to have a sound coming from one of the belts...
I noticed that the power steering pump is leaking oil. But is wasn't making any kind of sounds...And if it is the pump. Itís not making this noise when I am turning. Only when the engine revenue down after a gas push without any steering...
I just wonder is it the pump or can it be something else checked the belts and its fine.
Any help will be appreciated...

But I need to ask about ,if the oil is on the belt and pulleys???
Can it make this kind of sound...Like a squeezing sound...
I won't hear this sound so often..
Only when the engine revenue down after a gas push..

Thanks for your help!!

If the fluid (oil) gets on the belt and pulleys, it will cause the belt to slip which will result in the squealing/screeching noise you're hearing.
