2016 Focus ST-3 & 2021 Hyundai i20N
Well I had an absolutley s*** day yesterday. Just before my exit on the M6 there was a noise on my engine and the temp guage shot up. I turned off and pulled into a layby, my aux belt had split and got tangled up. So no water pump hence engine overheating. Also no power steering and alternator wasn't charging the battery. SatNav said I only had 3.7 miles until JamSport. I had been driving 3 hours and it decided to go last minute. I noticed a few members passing while I had my bonnet up but no one stopped to help. My car is still in Northampton, in a garage getting a new belt put on, I'm getting the train to pick it up tomorrow. You have no idea how upset and annoyed I am. I spent a lot on it the last week getting it ready, and fuel 3 hours there and 3 hours back, and nothing to show for it
This is crap luck!
What time were you stranded? And where?
I'm sure if anyone was aware of it, they would have stopped!
I must say I didn't see any breakdowns, but I was coming from a different direction i'd imagine (from the SW)...
