Never have I seen that happen. Hang around here long enough and you get to see and hear it all.
Damn good thing you found that piece. Getting it back on and locked down tight will definitely solve the initial purpose of this thread.

BTW: Happy New Year everyone!
This is crazy glad you can now repair her. That water pump pulley is always going to eat belts and make noise now its in that condition, time to go find a good one at the wreckers to replace it.

make sure you check the water pump and ac bearings for wobble in case those need replacing too as they were taking a beating while the belt wobbled.

Mine did the same at about 18 monts old. I found it laying on the bottom cover and screwed it back on the compressor. That lasted about 10 minutes. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the compressor under warranty. I wasn't happy as I thought some Loctite would solve the problem without disturbing the line set of the compressor which could create future problems.
They insisted so I let them do it and have had no problems since. I am convinced it was a manufacturing defect in that no Loctite was applied from the parts factory.
