I would be most suspicious of the alternator pulley. These are known to have issues and will at some point just come off. You may want to check out this thread on www.tdiclub.com: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=139424
Hope that helps.
BTW you can drive the car without that belt until the battery dies, you just won't have power steering or AC.

I would use the factory Power steering fluid. However as long as the fluid is Hydrolic oil G 002 000 you will be fine. Just take this referance number in and have your local parts store see if they can come up with comprable fluid to the VW power steering fluid

your mechanic has only given you part of a possible solution...lock the car with the key and hold over for 30 secs then take key out,wait 30 secs then unlock/hold key over for 30 secs,the windows may go down. then use the remote to lock car holding down the button for 30 secs..... this resets the system

It is a wiring fault, but they are looking on the wrong end. You will need to have a VW dealer "repin" the electrical connector at the throttle body. What this means is, the dealer will take apart the connector, cut off the old pins and crimp on new ones and reassemble the connector. This is a common problem on drive by wire VW's. The dealer has a bulletin on the problem and I don't know why they missed it. They will probably have to order the connector kit however. Good luck!
