    yes iam living with the same problem. there is a self tensioner with a spring in it they can become tired. if the bottom tray is off water can have an effect on them.

    This strangely enough can also be caused by the alternater clutch not working any more,
    to check this you put a small screwdriver in the vent and turn the internal fan it should turn easy oneway and be solid the other ,
    if its solid bothways it needs replacing
    again i know this sounds strange but it is an issue and does give these symptoms on TDi s.

    i have a similar problem where i get loud groaning noises on steering when moving slow and applying throttle. I did the above test with the screwdriver and my fan was solid one way and moved freely the other way. Does this completely rule out the pulley clutch issue? What else could it be?
