Re: help 156 dead !!! i think (poss alternator?)
Grinding noises don't normally mean cam belt, could I suggest some more preliminary checks, steering fluid level (possible pump failure, the drag will cut the engine out), remove the Aux belt and try to spin all the pulleys (obviously the crank wont spin), I'm not saying the AA mans wrong but there isn't much inside the engine that will grind when you turn it over, but if the clutch has let go then it's a fairly cheap repair.
