£310 parts and labour for a new alternator and belt. This is in London so it might be a bit more expensive compared to the rest of the UK.
Little car has just been towed away and it was indeed the alternator! Fingers crossed its back home and up and running soon 🤞
Thanks all, fingers crossed it is just the alternator. I feel bad calling anyone out in this weather, so if its thawed tomorrow I'll call the RAC then and let you know how we get on!
Ah I should have mentioned this in my post. When this happened before we had the RAC over who told us no fault codes came up, very helpful I know!
Hi everyone, I'm having this reoccurring issue with my 05 Aygo where car wont start, it attempts to crank but just makes this weird squeaking noise and never turns over. Last time this happened the mechanic took it apart, took off the belt, couldn't find anything wrong, and it magically fixed itself when put back together so he could no longer diagnose it. Unfortunately it's happened again today, so I'm hoping someone might have an idea about what it could be. I've attached a video which illustrates the problem far better than I can describe! unhappy-car.mp4
