    oK, so return from work last night to find wife has been recovered with dead copen, lower fan belt shredded, AA reconed that its the one going to the steering pump, hence no steering!
    Quick look shows no access for someone 6'2" & 16 stone from above with hands like spades!
    Can it be accessed from below & a simple change like on a normal car???

    Looks to me like there should be 3 belts, one going to the rear of the engine bay & altenator looks like its gone, then theres one going forward which looks like its to the steering pump which looks to be spun round the wrong way, maybe its jammed with the remnants of the missing one.

    If anyone has done this & can conf. 2 or 3 belts, then that's a start

    The 660cc? Three belts.

    Power Steering - 3PK500 - MicksGarage (for a 3pk495)
    Alternator -- 4PK685 - MicksGarage

    A belt can be ~5mm outside of these figures, such as the 3PK495 instead of the 3PK500, but any motor factors should be able to find you belts that are as close to the above as possible using the codes :)
