    Default Mk2 16v Water pump pulley

    The idler pulley on my 16v is totally borked.

    I've just rang VW and the part is now obsolete, what options do I have?

    Is there a similar idler pulley on the Corrado or am I going to have to change to a mk3 alternator/serpentine belt stuff?

    Thanks, oh its got PAS too.

    Hi, I have the same problem myself, makes the engine sound like a bag of bolts! Have tried euro,gsf and a few vag specialists with no luck. Will have to settle for a used one if I dont find one soon. Good luck with your hunt!

    Gonna take it off tomorrow and see if I can get either a new bearing or just weld it up.

    corrado kr & 9a will have what you want, either straight swap or the alternative 16v pulley setup which doesnt use a slipper wheel. if you get the other setup nick all the pulleys off it then you know you have what you need.

    If it was me I'd go for the MK3 setup as you say, much better and easier to get parts for. You can get everything you need from a 1.8-2.0 8v or 16v MK3, just the crank pulley that is 16v specific. you need:

    alternator
    alternator bracket
    pas pump
    pas brackets
    all the fixings you undo to get them above off
    belts to suit the above

    note there are 3 alternator belts available based on the year/model. MK3 A/C setup will also work, just you'll need to get a non-a/c waterpump pulley. Everything else is the same though

    Well i got the three allen head bolts out but can't get the bugger off :/

    Gonna have a look to see if I can get the newer bits locally for a reasonable amount.

    Thanks for the help

    Eventually got it off, its a strange thing.
    Its worn on the faces between the pulley and the centre, not the bearing, it wobbles from side to side.
    Think I can probably get a spacer machined up.

    Will let you know how I get on

    Right I couldn't get a spacer machined up as its gonna be too small

    I've just picked up a pulley from a Corrado 9a, it's the same size as the slip pulley of mine but just pressed metal.

    Now the problem I have is that the offset is wrong, can anyone tell me if there are different shaft sizes on the water pump between a KR and a 9A

    Thanks

    nope waterpumps all the same, you'll need all the other pulleys off the 9a to bring it back into line.

    I've made a spacer for the water pump pulley, hope it works.

    Cant imagine a 9a crank pulley being cheap from VW, ABF one is £300!

    I'll let you know how I get on tomorrow, cheers

    It lives!

    Made a spacer from the old slip pulley centre, put the new 9a water pump pulley and the old KR PAS pulley back on with the new belts and its working great.

    Altho I tightened the belts up a bit too tight and it sounded like a G60 !
