You are right - it is the zircon compressor unit. It has an internal clutch, so if the zircon is turned off, that plate remains still. Turn the zircon on and the clutch engages and it will spin. If it doesn't do this it's broken, and with a little hunting you can find a good second hand one - about £80, plus £200 to fit at an independent garage ( make SURE you find one that knows Alfas ). I can recommend Alfa Workshop.
