From Another C3 Forum:

Whenever I read "my friend and I" I know something bad is about to happen. In this case a guy and his friend noticed his late model C3 had an electric fan so they decided to ditch the mechanical fan and its shroud. After their removal all three of his belts uh "fell off" and ruined his new aluminum radiator.

The term "my friend and I" usually involves a weekend, a 12-pack of Bud Light, and some good old country music. As his three belts "fell off" I can only assume they managed to remove the fan and its shroud but forgot to secure the water pump's pulley so it was most likely the heavy pulley that crashed into his new aluminum radiator; not one of his three belts. And when the fan belt bailed it took the other two belts with it.

I have found when working on a C3 having a friend over to help is a major distraction.
