    The only way to tell would be to have a look , but as you would have to take the engine apart anyway you may as well.

    Or just buy a replacment engine from the breakers and replace the whole lot, it may be cheaper and less hassel to do that

    The first thing you need to do is find out if your engine is an “interference engine”. If it is and a timing belt breaks, you are in trouble. The valves will hit the pistons and cause lots of damage. If the engine is not an interference engine, then it’s no big deal. Just replace the belts, of course remembering to line the cams and crank up properly, and you are good to go.

    Hope this helps.

    The mk4 golf 1.6 only has one cam belt. 16v is driven on the same belt. If it snaps you will have damaged some of the valves and the engine will not run. The head will have to be removed to replace the valves.
    There is possibly two alternator belts which will not cause damage to the engine short term but should be replaced to prevent any damage occuring

    i’m afraid that if this belt has gone it will have done damage to the engine. bent valves .etc. seen it many times before on these!

    One cam belt if it breaks it’ll need a top end rebuild, pistons v valves equals big repair bill. Sorry
