    Why wasn't the pulley keyed or something? Would seem like a better approach to me. Anyway, yeah, sounds like this is one of those things VW should have mentioned in the service schedule or something..

    The pulley has a woodruffe key but the stretch bolts can snap on high mileage cars...

    Banannaman and Henny have been victims of this....

    Nice one Darren!

    I had this happen to me too, the day after I bought my car. Luckily there was no damage done. But itís a real worry while you wait to find out if thereís any damage.

    Its also just happen to my mates G60 two days ago. He posted the story on the Dubforce forum. We havenít got the broken part of the bolt out of the crank yet. We wonít know if any damage has been done until we get the broken bolt out (nightmare) and try turning the engine. At the moment it looks promising as he was going slow when it happened and the bottom pulley is still on the car but has popped out a bit. Think the water pump pulley has hopefully saved him as its jammed up against that. It may have slipped a couple of teeth on the timing belt but hopefully thatís it. His car has a Jabbasport big valve head on it too!! Heís gutted but optimistic, could be very expensive though!! What makes it worse is he had Awesome replace it about a month ago to prevent it from happening!! Any ideas why its happened? Think maybe Awesome didnít torque the new bolt correctly?


    Darren, I need to tell him not to get another G60 bolt then and to get a DX engine code replacement bolt?

    Glad to say I had this bolt fitted @ my last round of work at Stealth for that peace of mind. So Bobby, if you're reading this, one less thing to worry about mate!

    yeah this didnt happen to me cause I replaced mine, didnt use nutlock, snapped the woodruff key on the pulley cause of 2 much power? and then just paid tillmans german car specialists 1000 US to find the problem and fix it. felt great about that one.

    The bolt had gone on my syncro. The car left me at the side of the M6 after appearing to run ok for 25miles after picking it up.
    I changed the bolt as a matter of course but the car failed to start. I had checked the timing marks but it still wouldn't have it. I then checked to make sure number one piston was at the top. It wasn't........ The bottom pulley had no woodruff key in it. The crank slot was a little bit worn but not where it mattered. A nice secondhand pulley from Awesome and it started first turn of the key.

    Now using a DX bolt obviously. FIT AND FORGET.
