Question Did the tech. foul up my smog test?

Whats up, new '95 325is owner here.New to the forum ...

So I'm not new to Bimmers or cars in general but I know nothing about the smog check procedure..Took my 36(194k) in and it only failed the 15mph test in the HCM category(151 PPM). It passed earlier this Feb!!? Believe its a unburned/fuel related effect.

In the technicians notes it says the EVAP was inaccessible. My searches regarding evap units in respect to a 325 and smog was unsuccessful.Most of the info related to the evap and A/C?

Does the EVAP has a functional test in addition to the visual inspection?
The previous smog records state different result for the EVAP functional and

The previous owner has also deleted the A/C belt..Could this effect the smog result, and does the A/C belt need to be attached for proper EVAP functioning?

I'm in the process of plug & VC gasket replacement..Wondering if i should attach the A/c belt while I'm at it.

I would greatly appreciate the help.

BTW: NICE CARS..One day mine will looks at good as you fellow members..Pics coming soon!!
