Today while I was headed to a buddies house I stopped at a stop sign. While accelerating through the intersection I heard a piece of metal drop onto the ground. I was a little bit sketched out by it, but didn't think much of it. About 100 feet later I realized that I had lost power steering. I quickly pulled off to the side of the road and popped my hood.
What had happened is a while ago the bearing for one of the pulleys gave out so the mechanic replaced the whole pulley. The bolt holding that pulley in snapped off and the pulley fell onto the ground, which let the belt come loose and get tangled up. It only had about 100 miles on it since the belt and pulley were replaced. What do you guys think caused that to happen so I make sure it doesn't happen again?
