So I phoned our garage man and told him the car was making exotic noises. "You'd better bring it down so I can hear it", he said.
So at 4 I drove our amazingly noisy car down to the garage, about 400 yards away. Everywhere I went people turned and looked.
When I got there the garage owner wasn't there, but one of his lads got his torch out and had a good look.
"C'est la poulie double" (the double pulley).
The boss came back. He priced it up. €230. They'll do the job tomorrow.
