A sledge will do. Through the roof.
Anyway is there a aftermarket fitting with no clutch in?
You could use a gasser pulley. But then you would be right back were you are now because your pulley is acting exactly like a solid gasser pulley does. The belt would still be jumping around at idle, and over time destroying the tensioner.
The clutched pulley is there for an extremely valid reason on TDI's.
