Serpentine belt installed incorrectly...

I just noticed that after retrieving my 01 WJ from the mechanic that the serpentine belt has been routed incorrectly. Specifically, it's now routed like this:

power steering > water pump > generator > A/C

The correct routing is:

power steering > generator > water pump > A/C

It seems that all pulleys will turn the same way regardless, but the more I look at it, the more it just looks like a Mobius strip. Anyway, my question is: are the two routings functionally equal?

Yep, there's a sticker on the fan guard in plain sight.

He probably got the wrong belt, and instead of getting a new one and fixing it properly, re-routed it. Get a new belt, and a new mechanic, and do it right.

if i'm reading that right, the water pump is now turning backwards and providing no coolant flow.


even a trained poodle could change a serp belt, go out and do it right.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Now that you mention it, I haven't seen a single poodle since I arrived in this country nearly eight years ago.

I havent seen one since like 1999. Maybe they are going extinct?

I know way off the original post, but poodles are alive and well. I work with dogs and see them everyday. The yuppies found a new breed, the labradoodle or goldendoodle. Lab mixed with poodle, or golden retriever mixed with poodle. BTW i am not a fan of poodles.

Oh yea, and on topic if the OP didnt say any diff, just losen up the belt and re-route, hella easy.

Even easier if you have no big shroud like me.
