Any help much much appreciated.

My drive belt had almost gone, split in half. I took it off and asked a friend to look over it as I know very very little. He said that he wasn't sure, but that the crank pulley didn't look right.

There is a bit of play, and I am able to turn it. Its stiff but it will turn. He was saying that as this is attached to the crank then it shouldn't turn, but he was unsure.

Basically from the pics below

1) Does the crank pulley need changing?

2) If so, is it a case of ordering one online (ive seen for as little as £60) and changin it with a standard toolkit or do I go to a mechanic?

Should have said it's a VW LT 1999 2.5 SDi if that's any help

I just had mine changed when I had the timing belt done.  There's rubber dampers inside that split over time and cause play.  

It's not too hard to replace but for the tightness of crank bolt and also the pulley may be stuck in place and need some persuading before it comes loose.  It took my mechanic about half an hour to shift.

VW part was about £100  - not too much more than pattern.

Think the best thing is to bring it to my mechanic and get the crank pulley changed, as well as the timing belt and some other engine bits while I'm at it. Thanks TellyTubby!
