Default Mk 5 Golf 2.0tdi 2004 - Cam belt problem Help!!!



Hi All,

Im new here only had my T5 for around a month.

This however relates to my Golf as above. It broke down on the slip road, wouldn't start again once it had cut out. I towed it to my usual garage, who kindly put it on the code reader and told me that it was most likely the belt had snapped. when i asked if how much this was to repair they advised it probably wasn't worth fixing. They didn't charge me for the prognosis. so i know they don't what to rip me off or anything like that.

I had it towed home and then today I have had a look and can't seem to see the snapped belt. now i am a complete novice at mechanics so chances are I'm looking at completely the wrong thing so please advise if I am. but here is what i found:-

I think this is still in tack so am i looking at the right thing?

thanks

Craig

You can't diagnose a snapped belt from a code reader! Did they even open the bonnet? If not I'd take it to some one else.
Does the engine turn over when you turn the key? Could be a few things but I suspect it shouldn't be to drastic.

BKD engines are funny ones bud! What were the symptoms of the breakdown, such as gradual loss of power etc or just a complete shutdown. Electrical power present etc? Any strange revving beforehand, could you still crank the engine?

Does the belt have tension? is it leaking water?
