I was told by vaux parts dept that you can no longer buy the crank pulley cog anymore?

was it the key on the crank or the pulley that broke?

thats what I said, isnt it

Ive seen this happen twice lately, x20xe and a x16xe. both times were due to garages not using a new crank pulley bolt during cambelt changes and not tightening them up properly.
