    Cambelt fitted, strange wear, help

    I have attached a photo of my Cambelt.
    Basically fitted it 300 miles ago. Checked it and it has a strange metallic glaze on it with the same corresponding glaze top idler.
    it is a 1.9 tdi 110 afn. It's running perfect but wonder why it's wearing like this.

    It ran fine after installation, but it would seem as if the idler has become sticky or seized

    Don't worry too much, the marks are from the oil pump drive pulley and if the tensioner notches are lining up and move anticlockwise when pushing down on the belt then all is ok ! I do hope you tensioned the pulley clockwise ?
