    Change alternator belt at same time as cam belt???

    Just got off the phone to a VAG specialist and we somehow got on to the topic of cam belt replacement. Told him I've recently had mine done and he asked if I got the alternator belt changed too. (Is that the same as a fan belt???)

    Anyone know if this is something that should be changed at a similar interval to the cam belt??

    Also, if the alternator belt was to fail/snap does it result in the same disasterous engine damage as it does when your cam belt breaks???
