V belt completely shredded ...
As I was driving back with a full carload of folks from a holiday party, the smell of burnt rubber and loss of power steering caused me to stop right in front of the fire department. The vbelt had been making a bit of noise for a few days, but it now it was completely caput.
Since I could not quite drive it I had it towed to a service station.
How did I do? Should I have parked it somewhere and attempted to replace the belt myself? How difficult is it to replace the belt?
I have successfully replaced a belt on my washing machine. And this seems like a similar kind of deal. Any thoughts?
