That's what is called your serpentine belt, or accessory belt. They don't last forever. You're supposed to inspect them for cracks every 40,000 miles or so because the rubber breaks down and they get weaker over time. Sounds like yours is about 8 yrs old. Any vw/audi shop can replace it for you.

Belt broke stering has gone tight-which belt do i need audi a4 1996


Give the model and year at an autoparts store and ask for a power steering belt. Will likely be running the waterpump and alternator too so you cant drive far because you will overheat the engine and or flatten your battery.
Loosen alternator bracket all bolts and move it to the shortest distance to the nearest pulley wheel. Slide belt around all free wheels and idlers (tensioning wheels) and move alternator bracket back to original position so belt is tight.
If you cant get the belt on belt is too short, if it is not tight with alternator about half way along the adjustment bracket belt is too long. Take it back to store, act real grumpy, try to leave with right size belt and a free gift.

I went to reverse my car off the drive and my steering wheel has gone totally stiff and the battery light came on although has since gone off the steering wheel will not turn???


Check to make sure your alternator belt hasnt snapped, the same belt usually drives the power steering.

Hope this helps

My 2001 astro lost it's brakes and power steering at the same time. any ideas?


check the power steering pump to see if the shaft broke. remove the belt and pull the pulley on the pump, it should not pull out of the pump. If it does you need a new pump
