Mk2 was booked for MOT yesterday at 6pm. Test centre a 15 mile drive so I was prepping the car for the trip, noticed my pas belt was squealing and the wheel felt a little resistance, so I took the reservoir cap off and lock to locked it a few times - puff of smoke and a snapped pas belt. Still had a few hours til MOT at that point so I located the correct belt from ECP East Edinburgh (I live in Dunfermline) and went and got it rather than have it sent to Dunfermline next day as I wanted to fit it before the test. This is where it got a bit weird. Noticed I'm missing the top bolt for the pas pump (the one next to/below the coolant hose to w/pump), the bolt closest to the pulley had a rounded head and couldn't get it to grip with spanners, so took the pulley off to get a hex socket on it which worked at loosening it. I then discover I'm missing most of the left hand bracket so no tensioning capability, and the right hand bracket has a broken lug for the bolt that enables swivelling the pump. I got the pump replaced in 2011. I remember the mechanic saying he had a hassle getting it to fit right, now I know why. There were parts missing/broken that he probs was not aware of. It does not pivot like it's supposed to, to enable easy belt replacement/access to other components behind. He has wanged it up and bolted it in and, to be fair to him, it's lasted almost a decade. Looks like the car sitting around for almost 2 years has finished the belt off, it was probably too tight all along. Result is I have suspended the MOT until I get this problem resolved fully to correct spec. I will need to replace most if not all bolts due to corrosion, plus left hand and right hand brackets. Noticed the spacer washer for pump pulley is missing too. Is that essential? The brackets I can get easily but regards the bolts - I need to know the length of the top bolt next to w/pump hoses. Presuming all are M8?
