Q: v-belt repair cost on 2001 BMW 325i

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
my car needed to be jump started but then was working fine for a few days when driving it around...i went on a trip and the steering became hard...the car was overheating and when i stopped to put in coolant,the battery died (turned on but not the engine)the steering was still very difficult...i was hoping i dont need an altenator, how much should it cost to repair the v-belt?

The drive belt drives all of these items ( water pump, alternator and power steering pump) So either the belt just failed and came off or one of the belt driven components failed and caused the belt to break. You need to have a shop trouble shoot this further and once they determine what failed you can check prices here
