The A/C belt goes on first and then the water pump/power steering pump/alternator belt. The route is obvious for the A/C. The water pump, alt, P/S belt, starting at the top pulley for the water pump, go under the deflection pulley then over the alt. Then around the P/S pump then around the crankshaft and then to the idler pulley and then to the water pump and that is it.
