Q: Broken pulley

asked by on

Ok so I'm replacing the serpentine belt on my car . But when i went to start the car , a one of the pulleys came completely off . I don't know which one but I can point it out on the diagram .
My car has an automatic transmission.

I would highly recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic to come by and give you a hand with your Volkswagen if you’re unable to provide more information. They will be able to assist you with your damaged pulley and ensure that serpentine belt is properly installed.
