The Woodruff key had broken loose in the WR we did a couple of weeks
back.  It had already started to make a mess of the pulley, but didn't
seem to have damaged the crank.  The 'undoing' torque was about 250 lb
ft - I speculated at the time that someone had misunderstood Audi's
torquing instructions during the most recent timing belt change.
