The Zexel AC compressor also mounts differently than pictured. 4 Long M10 x 150? Bolts run front to back into four mounts on engine vs the transverse bolts pictured above
Yeah, those diagrams I posted are only for -98, I should have noted as such.

I just created the thread to make a searchable topic for anyone in the Forum to find their routing, even the children of the “bastards “

In pictures, old thread

Two things happened in 1999 that complicate

1 alternator rotation direction is reversed

2 the pulley clutch was added, so that the alternator is only spun in one direction internally.

If you short belt, a 1999, you thus won’t get alternator charging.
