  4. hi guys last night I'm was driving in town and had to hard swerve to avoid hitting a cat on the road, 10 sec after that I lost power steering so drove home with was only a min away, just as I got home the temp gauge hit max and there was a battery error on screen which im getting is because the belt came off, reckon a new belt will be all that's needed or do you think I might of damaged the engine or water pump etc, in hind sight I should of pulled over when it happen, will get a new belt tomorrow and get a mate to help me change it but just thought id ask you guys on your opinion
