The belt tensioner does it automatically at location B

See the guide below, not vehicle specific, but work on the same principal

A lot of engines run the water pump on the timing belt, but never the generator. That is always run by the serpentine belt.

I own an Optima Hybrid model 2012 and I need some information about the length and characteristics of the drive belt and also the alternator belt, Because the car had an accident and lost the old belts where the spare parts are not available at the agency in Jordan.
I appreciate if you can provide the length and the specifications of these two belts:(252122G652 and 252122g660) so I can catch a similar belts from the market.
Many Thanks
Razi
