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

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?

Help needed please exactly the same happened to me except I had a code not sure if its relevant as I've just bought the car and had driven it two hours back before she gave up 3 miles from home
Green flag turned up
left engine mount solinoid open was the code
He freed the inlet manifold actuator and sprayed some easy start fired up and got me home I've checked the belt mentioned and it seems pretty tight only a slight flex in it
