While driving on the freeway at approximately 65 mph the pulley wheel from the motor came off. This caused the power steering to go out. Owner had the vehicle towed to the dealer, and was informed that the pulley wheel and drive train pulley belt had to be replaced.

The tensioner pulley froze up and disintegrated, causing the serpentine belt to fray badly. It rubbed up against and scraped a hole in the power steering pump.
