Pulley broken off - hence aux belt come off


My auxillary belt on my 156 2.0 TS (2001) has come off! Hence no P/S no air con (though air con hasn't seemed to work since i bought the car) - maybe belt was slipping then?

Oh and it was starting to overheat prior to the belt coming off on Sat night!

Looks like the bottom left pulley has snapped off - is this attached to the water pump casing?

Be grateful; for your help pls - ideally if someone has a diagram of each of the components of the pulley/cam assembly (side on)?

The water pump is driven by the timing belt on the TS engines...

Most likely cause (if it's not just a simple snapped belt) is the idler (G) or the tensioner (T)...
