      MKIV guys, help me out. Best guess is that this is part of the hood latch mechanism? Don't want to close the hood until the part is back in place.

      In this case the brushes don't appear to be the issue. I'm leaning towards the belt pulley. The new pulley rotates one way then snaps back. The old one freewheels in either direction.
