Default Serpentine Belt Replacement | Looking for Diagram and Order

Hi guys,

I have checked the previous threads on this matter however the links posted and images submitted are no longer available.

I'm getting a replacement belt tomorrow morning as my current belt is shredded and about to rip off (I'll post images tomorrow morning on this thread when I do the job). The belt hasn't even made it a year since my timing belt replacement where I believe the mechanic replaced all the pulleys and tensioners as well - at least I hope they did.

I'm wondering if anyone has any diagrams related to a 2004 Audi A8L 4.2L V8. I can't seem to find one in Google Images; the links state they belong to a 4.2L D3 A8 but they differ from one another. Also, is there a specific order in which I need to install the belt, if so what is it?

I don't have the special tool required to hold the tensioner in place but I do understand it's a 19mm hex, and all I would need is a box wrench, or any other wrench of some sort - probably a few more hands


Thank you in advance!

Did the shop who did the job use "stuff" from Blauparts by chance?

No, local supplier. Sorry about your experience with them, though.

I'm going to check the belt tomorrow once I take it off to see if there are any burn marks. I had some trouble fixing my AC so I'm hoping it's not my compressor.

EDIT

Old belt was not fitted properly and caught on a pulley. Other than that it's still new.

Yeah, you need the diagram for this one, it really isn't at all intuitive how it's routed.
