The First Problem

Hello All
Need alittle help bought a 147 2L TS in jan and i love it !!
Got the dealer to replace the Timing Belt,Balance Belt and Tensioner before i picked it up.
And for 5 months its run with no probs what so ever a great car.

Wednesday bang !! it dies on me at about 50mph tried turning it over and knew the belt had gone.

Now i have paperwork with the dealer stamp and the dealer has comfirmed that both belts and tensioner have been replaced.

So he has contacted the parts supplier and i'm waiting for them to contact me about the possibility of the supplied parts failing and doing an inspection.

Now is there anything else that could fail and give the same symtoms as a failed timming belt/balance belt or tensioner.
And has anyone else had similar happen and what was the out come.
