1.9D Water Pump gone - anything else?*Fixed*
Really don't know much about engines so will try to explain as best as possible...
Driving home yesterday started to get a squeeling noise at times and guessed belt or water pump could be dodgy. Very close to home and the temperature gauge went up to halfway on guage but no further then the battery charging warning light came on and steering got heavy
Car finally stopped as parking on the driveway so hardly moving at the time. No water in the chamber and found the belt although not broken seems to have slipped off. Friend has looked and confirmed waterpump has gone which was the reason for the belt coming off. Will be getting it to a Renault garage next week but am worried if it's likely there has been any engine damage - valves etc? Does this sound very likely as need to brace myself for repair bill.
