Hello, Recently the alternator/auxiliary belt on my 06 1.2 Polo slipped and was catching on a bolt just to the lower right of the belt. I took the car to the local garage where they fitted a wider belt, this didn't help as the belt was now directly rubbing onto this bolt. Long story short, they decided to remove this bolt and the belt runs freely no issues. My question is: Would this cause any damage, is something now loose? I was told that this bolt doesn't hold anything and that it is a design flaw. So far the car seems fine, no loud rattles. Anyone with some experience of this 1.2 3 cyl engine please give me your insight. Cheers.
