Urgent help needed guys! A class Mercedes problem

New to the forum hope someone can help with my mums A140

Problem is; as she was driving the steering became stiff and she said "locked up" being a small woman I'm guessing it must have been really stiff and her unable to steer properly I doubt it will lock up completely but I will see tomorrow morning.

She also said the battery light came on the dash as well when this happened.
I'm guessing maybe the battery is shagged? I've only just got in from work so i wont be able to look now so it will have to be tomorrow.

What could it be? If it isn't the battery? AUX belt?

Any help would be highly appreciated guys!

Thanks in advance

Sounds to me like you lost the belt - no power steering and no alternator probably no A/C either :-)
