Look for a sticker under the hood with a diagram showing you the correct belt routing.

European spec cars do not have a diagram under the hood (bonnet) your local library or autoparts store will supply a repair manual with a belt routing diagram and repair infromation

European cars don't have a diagram sticker?
That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
Why would they do that.
