Hey Guys,

I need some help. Get into my car this morning and start it up. Sounded funny, with a high pitch sound (belt sound). My battery light remained light. Then I a burning smell started so I turned it off. Open up the hood and there's SMOKE! Waited for a bit since I couldn't see anything.....tried to start again, and that's when the belt broke.

Is there anyone here who lives downtown that can help? My books and tools are still packed away.....I just moved recently.

I believe it's the main belt that runs the rad, alternator, etc......

Case of beer to whoever can give a fellow Max member a hand!!

Any idea how easy this is??

Thanks Guys,
