Water pump drive belt adjustment?
I had some time yesterday so I had a poke about at the engine of my new 1.8t and whilst doing an oil change I noticed that the very small belt from the power steering pump to the water pump is a little slack but I cant for the life of me see any adjustment for it. As it is at the moment it's ok but I can see it wouldn't take much to stop the water pump turning. Is there any adjustment to be had or is it a case of fitting a new belt?
Also noticed there is no belt fitted to the air-con so that needs investigating as to why....
On the upside I cured the misfire/hesitation I was getting at 3000rpm. It was a short piece of vac pipe off the intake manifold to a valve thing on the fuel rail.
