Steering problem
2002 Renault Megane 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 110000 miles

hi, yesterday whilst driving my power steering faulted and it was very difficult to steer. I was 10 miles from home and continued to drive home hoping id make it, a short time later I could smell a sweet smell coming from the heating system which would only pump cold air through the car, then after a further 5 miles the radio went off followed by the window wipers then all the electrics went off and I broke down half mile from home and had to be towed. Today the car wont start at all. I am taking it to a mechanic tomorrow but can you advise if you think this is a major fault. Thanks Lee

The alternator/power steering belt has probably broken and needs replacing !
