Driving home today (94 530ia) - power steering goes out, alternator light comes on, and the temp. gauge starts heading north. No sounds or other signs of a bad belt (in case you hadn't guessed - the one around the water pump and other accessories). Thankfully was almost home (turned heater on full blast rest of way - less than 1/2 mile). Open hood and the belt is shredded and some coolant has boiled out.
Question - other than replacing what is broke/missing (belt & coolant) - any damage that could be done? What/where to look for it? thanks.
