This is my first post so hello to you all!

Got a little problem, most probably brought on by my laziness. My alternator belt has been loose and squeeking for a while but before i had a chance to get it sorted it has snapped. This didn't seem a massive problem to me initially, but now there is a knocking noise coming from around the engine. Also the oil pressure light has come on. This confussed the AA man and he didnt know what to think. The engine still has oil pressure, and still runs. Any ideas as to what the problem is?

Thanks

Antony

Alternator belt is tensioned by a spring so it should be tight and all you need to do to adjust it is loosten 2x 10mm bolts and lock them up again. Were the edges of the belt worn and does your bottom pulley wobble around when the engine is running?
