    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A couple of months ago, my auxiliary belt snapped. No further damage done. Had the belt changed and thought that was the end of it. Wrong! Less than 2k later, the second and new belt snapped, therefore further investigation was warranted. There were no signs of movement or play or any damage...

Fortunately I managed to stop just in...
