So I went on a short errand ride and after 30 seconds I start hearing this nasty scratching/cranking sound that got worse the more I touched the gas pedal.
I kept driving gently to my destination as not to upset the vehicle (yet it still made bad sounds).
A few minutes later I opened the hood and saw some giant screw disconnected.
It seems to me that this led the drive belt to sit on the frame of the car.
I tried moving the parts back in place for several minutes but nothing really budges.
Is this a serious problem I should tow to the garage
or can I attempt to fix something here?
