If you remove the Upper Timing Belt cover you'll be able to see if the
Pulley is spinning on the shaft.  This couldn't happen unless the Bolt is

Hello All, I had an issure with a slow starter. Narrowing it down the
offending part i replaced the cables, better grounded also, though finally
tested a spare i purchased and Lo, It was the starter. The offender actually
could have been used as a musical instrument as it rattled at the bearing
end so much.
Vacumn, I have a 91 jetta Gl that sat for several months in the winter as i
waited for warmer climes to change a water pump, new timing belt also, Now i
don't seem to have any vacumn. Bentley seems to be hiding the info on it
though the archives suggest a simle rebuild This is all good though in the
back of my mind i am wondering if the "key" securing the intermediate pulley
could have not locked in and therefore the sproket spins on the shaft with
the vacumn issue begining there.
which way would yall verify this. pull the upper t bellt cover or remove the
vacumn producer looking for rotation.
