Broken Fan Belt.

Discovered yesterday during our journey that the starter alternator fan belt had broken, replaced it this morning, without too much fuss apart from the sheared alternator bolt, but had a spare handy fortunately. Not a difficult job except there are 4 fan belts in all, and this one was the rearmost of the 4, so the other 3 had to be removed first to be able to get the new one fitted, so both the domestic alternator and the engine water pump had to be slackened to remove the 3 belts, a pain but such is life. I obviously have my strength back to be able to shear a bolt!
