Took car for diesel at my lunch break and filled up as usual. Started car up and heard this great big bang. Switched back off and on again and it was fine and drove back to work. Couple of seconds later the spanner light came on along with the alternator light. Engine temp rose very quickly and i managed to get to work ok.
After having my lunch i went back to car. Started it up and no lights came on but started to drive to the dealers. On the way there all the lights came back on and the engine temp gauge rose to the second last red line and the coolant light started flashing and i could actually smell burning.
Anyway, long story short the bottom crank shaft pulley snapped, the belt is missing and all the parts were lying under the engine. The parts are on back-order from VX so it won't be sorted quickly and i'm in the middle of a battle to get a courtesy car.
Finished work at 8 and that's me just in
