19/09/2015 11:45I have a Raymarine autopilot fitted to my Beneteau 36. Its pretty new,(Its the one that is fitted to the wheel) and I used it extensively when I brought my boat over from the UK to the Med. It has recently started making a squeeking noise when its in use, and then last week the nylon/plastic belt snapped. I am obviously going to replace the belt(they are not cheap) but my concern is why did it break in the first place, and is the new one likely to break?
Any advice would be welcome
