Driving along in a 2.0 VW Vento GL and the engine cut out and will not re-start timing belt IS ok but would appear that there is no spark the engine did not cough and splutter it just stoped

This situation recently happened to my girlfriend and it was the timing belt upon inspection all looked well but turning the engine over by hand found that the pulley grooving on the inside of the belt was peeled away.Also you may want to look at the alternator connections and verify they are in good shape.good luck.
