but it if it was some other part that has failed they should of spotted it when changing the belt, did you have a full kit if just belt fitted, imo if the belt has jumped,snapped,tensioner,roller failed.it is the garages reponsibiltiy.when ever a car comes into our garage we have to do a full visual check of the car, i no you cant see the cambelt, but even if the auxillary belt has come it may of pushed through the cover and damaged the belt.

the garage has to at least inspect the car you get a 1 year parts warranty
