Thanks for your speedy response, once the power steering pump drive belt had been removed the replacement alternator belt could be fitted quite easily.
Kindest regards.

I have a very winey fan belt on my n reg renault clio

You can tighten the belt or replace the belt - its a REALLY REALLY EASY job, can be done in 5 minutes by a novice -
Buy a new fanbelt (£4.00 approx - dont pay more than £7.00 go somewhere else if you encounter silly prices!!!)
the alternator is on the bottom of the engine on the left hand side, looking at it it seems you need to do it from underneath, if you park it with the 2 offside(right hand side) wheels on the kerb that should give enough room.
There are 2 bolts with nuts that go through the alternator holding it in place, slacken these bolts (one is a "hinge", one is a "clamp") so you can move the alternator - either fit the new belt (look at the old one first and see how it goes on) or tighten the alternator with the old one.
See how by moving the alternator you slacken and loosen the belt... Pull it to tighten the belt and then while still pulling/pushing tighten the "clamp" bolt to hold the alternator in place, then tighten the "hinge" bolt then again put full pressure on the clamp bolt and tighten it fully. You have to keep pressure on the alternator while you tighten the bolts, 'the bolts must be tightened very tight, you wont break the bolts unless you are particularly strong so just tighten them as tight as you can.
The belt should have very little give in it but some*** , be sturdy but not SOLID! - should be quiet again!
If you need a more detailed walkthrough I'm happy to help - if you reply once you have a new fanbelt (recommended) i'll take you step by step.

If the timing belt has snapped then you will have caused major internal engine damage. Its not just a case of replacing the belt as its likely the pistons will have made contact with the valves and bent them in the process. You will need a qoute from a garage for the repair and potentially you are looking in excess of £1000. The only alternative to this is to source a suitable engine for exchange from a breakers.
