Help! Squealing wont stop

Ok I have a 1988 BMW 325i and i am only 17 yeah its older than me! It has this squealing problem that wont stop! Its really embarrassing cuz i wanna put the top down but it squeals. It sounds like it comes from around the power steering belt so i replaced the belt when i replaced the water pump and thats when it started. It doesnt squeal as much when im in the Alabama heat but at night it starts back! I need some help its taking away some of the power that the car has also

Sounds like one of the belts may need to be tightened. Ask your dad to help you out with that if you can. Otherwise, you can take it to a mechanic, but they might charge you way too much. Good luck!
