Default I put my supercharger belt on wrong!

After my LIM repair I was following up and checking fluid levels. I thought this looked a little suspicious. Notice how close the belt is to the water pump pulley. Thats cuz it don't go there!.. My wife drove it to work one day, it works but literally touches the water pump pulley. Thanks to 2000SilverBullet and harofreek and OldBlueEyesBonny for the help and diagrams to put it on right

Yeah I bet that belt was a ROYAL PITA to put on the wrong way. I bet the second time, putting it on correct, was a bit easier.

Didn't you have a service manual? The service manual has the correct path.

I hope you had access to a manual when you went at the SC gasket, etc.

It'* embarrassing but when we did Kyle'* (allmachtige) pulley we discovered that you can use the stock size belt on a 3.5" SC pulley if you route it that way. I only had about 2 beers at that point so we can't even blame that .

There isn't a routing diagram under the hood, but it is shown in the owner'* manual.
