Is there any way to determine if the elastic drive coupling and freewheel for the alternator has been replaced or not? I have a 2007 Touareg R5 which shows 194000 km and somewhat unknown service history between 150000 km and 190000 km. The service plan says to replace coupling and freewheel every 180000 km. As you can see it looks closer to new than ten years old, or does it always look like that? There is no play if you try to turn it but it slides back and forth from the freewheel to the engineside gear...
