    You need to get a machine on it to scan

    If you have no fault codes I would suggest a fuel problem. Take the fuel pipe off that comes from the tank and make sure there is fuel coming through when the ignition is turned on. The pump in the tank should run for a few seconds to prime the circuit.

    You tried a proper VCDS scan? I can almost gurantee you will find a fault code if the engine isn't starting.

    Your the second person in a week who has had issues with the fuel pump belt drive.

    Note to self get wifeys changed asap!
    Still look on the bright side its a relatively simple and cheap fix.
    Anyone know the change interval?
