    Default Alternator belt just fell off! (120)

    Weeeeel after 2 hours of ownership of the 120 engine I've broken down! Lmao!

    So the alternator belt has just fallen off, it's not snapped, just slipped off.

    Just called the AA only a 30 minute wait so not too bad so far... Just hope they can do something. I'm meant to be in taunton in 20 minutes.... And I'm over 100 miles away still.

    So what damage can this cause? Is it just a betters thing?

    The embarrassing moment you and your new pride and joy is delivered to your doorstep on the back of an AA flat bed... complete with flashing yellow lights and incredibly loud noises at 0230 in the morning... this is also the first time your neighbors have seen said new pride and joy! LMAO
