i had a one snap a few weeks back, i dont know what caused it but i put it down to poor casting in the alloy as it was not that old..

By the looks of that belt, it hasn't been running true for a long time. The tensioner assembly has been in need of replacement for a long time. Dayco make decent quality one.

in my case it was a genuine tensioner less than 12 month old and failed on the freeway, it had broken and fell back and was rubbing on the head, i tried to limp it home but only lasted 10km before it ejected the pulley leaving no choice but a tow home..
