I think the belt PN depends on the tensioner style. If you have a hydraulic tensioner, go ahead and order the older style kit.
It does. When I did my '98 C70 I counted the teeth to make sure they sent the right one. There is a difference in belt length due to the a difference in the position of the tensioners.
Wow. Thanks, all. Very helpful indeed.

Seems like a good idea to count the number of teeth on the TB.

Amazing to see that short-circuit caught in time, too.

Achieved an oil change. Oil filter was kaput. Yes, that's a hole right through the paper element. Had the same thing on the opposite side.

Between that, the AWD prop shaft being off and the exhaust open after the CAT, it's likely true. =)

Nice! I recently upgraded my rear ones too, they were completely shot. I already had a pair of new 6×9s that was initially intended for another car. Had to cut out some material to make them fit though but it was totally worth it.

nice, yea had i not finally found these, my next option was to go with 6x9s and make them fit... they were a snug fit but mounted up perfectly, recently did my front speakers so audio sounds so much better... next project is to upgrade the head unit
