I'm in the same boat mate, turning up the stereo seems to do the trick! Been told they will soldier on for miles before finally giving up, unlike a belt which tends to just snap when neglected. I will try to track down a replacement and get a local garage to fit it.

save yourself the garage fees and do it yourself mate as it's a very simple job to do.
