cracks! Tis rarely they wear out. (GM) Mostly they just desinigrate from old age. Look at the inside surface of the belt. There may be hairline cracks across th grooved ribs. Cracks 1/2 thru the belt means put a new one on. Save that old belt in the boot for emergency use.

You can check the wear yourself by removing the valve cover on the b6 model where as the k8 is somewhat more difficult and will require removing the timing cover.
