We only have the word of the idiot who's had it for weeks that the belt had snapped, we never actually saw it, given his behaviour i wouldn't put it past him to lie!!
Luckily its a petrol, hoping thats cheaper.
I didn't hear any noise when it died just a low whirring as it coasted to a halt.
What was meant to be an inexpensive 2 week job has become very stressful and now most likely very expensive 2 month job!!
