Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
I had a clacking sound going on under the hood. Driving home the other day it stopped clacking.....I fixed it! I thought the belt broke. Got home and popped the hood. This is what I found:
This is what it should normally look like.
This is what I saw.
I guess the ring wore out.
What is this housing that it goes into?
If you have any information about any possible solutions to this I would appreciate it.
It looks like this could be the water pump pulley which has come away, in which case, the housing to which you refer would be the water pump itself.
Very best regards
