While the 2000 Chrysler Sebring uses a serpentine belt to drive most of the accessories on the engine, Chrysler mounted the power steering pump to the passenger’s side of the engine and ran a single belt from the crankshaft pulley to the power steering pump. Replacing the power steering pump belt is made easier yet because Chrysler ran this belt in front of the serpentine belt, allowing you to remove the belt without having to touch the serpentine belt. Both the serpentine and the power steering belts are available from auto parts stores and the dealership.
