    Hello, looking for some help with my Allroad (again!!). Does anybody know where I can find a belt routing diagram for the drive (not timing belts)?? It snapped on Tuesday on the motorway, and I now have new belt and the front of the car off with access to all the pulleys and tensioners, but am really struggling to work out how to route the belt, seeing as I haven't got the old one to work from!! Any ideas appreciated. Julian

    Thanks. I have seen this diagram already, but it dosen't seem to tally with what I have on the car!! Between the crank pulley and the power steering pulley there is a tensioner (bottom left of this diagram I think?). I'm worried I've been sold the wrong belt - a 6PK2400, as I'm not sure that was the length of the old belt that came off. I discovered this afternoon that the cause of failure was the bolt holding the tensioner to the block shearing off, causing the belt to snap. I've manged to remove the broken stud and refix the tensioner, now just struggling with the belt routing. This car has and additional belt driving the air conditioning compressor too! Any suggestions as to whether I have the correct belt appreciated!
