      i forgot to mention that i think it has to be 6 rib cause I have never seen a 7 made in that length.

      the belt has to be a 6 rib. there is a bolt head that sticks out the side of the block that will tear up the inside of a 7 rib belt. you have to align the 6 rib belt with the outer edge of the pullies (away from the block) in order to avoid that. get a 6pk1105 or a 6pk1065 (if you have an under-drive crank pulley)

      Uhm... which bolt head would it hit and why would that not hit when you use a long 7?

      i dont remember what bolt it is, but using a 7 rib puts the belt right along it. its there, trust me. look between the crank pulley and alt pulley along where the belt runs and you'll see it

      so i went to advanced auto and picked up a belt. something tells me its wrong they didnt have the PN listed in this thread, but they cross referenced it and came up with this...


      its a 6 rib. but it only has ribs one one side instead of both like the OEM one

      you only need a double sided belt with ac, once thats removed you can use a single sided.

      with the belt being at a different angle it will come into contact with a bolt that holds the aluminum front main seal cover thats behind the crank pulley

      Its the stock Alt/AC bracket. It uses the bottom Alternator holes and the top AC holes. takes some modifications but its pretty straight forward.



      Somewhat better pics. I eventually want to make one where it gets rid of the tensioner and i use the alternator to make tension on the belt.

      So, I deleted my a/c cuz it didnt work, now my power steering makes noise when I turn the wheels at a dead stop. I'm thinking of deleting it because it might fail in the future. How hard is it to turn the wheels without PS? & What all has to be deleted; I know the pump, lines, and bottle. What do you do at the Rack or w/e???

      I believe that there a couple of threads about deleting the P/S, most guys seen to loop the lines. For my A2 I ordered a manual rack from German Auto Parts. This thread is solving my question of belt set up with the P/S and A/C delete: thanks guys!
