I always had trouble with Continental alternator belts on both my VW 
Jetta and Audi 200.  In fact, the inability to keep a new alternator 
belt on my 200 for more than a couple 1000 miles is party what led to 
it being scrapped last year.  I had problems with aftermarket 
Continental belts on my Jetta, too, had better luck with Genuine VW belts.
