Belt Diagram

Can anyone point me to a diagram of route both A/C and water pump belts? I've read on here that what might be in some manuals isn't actually correct.

The reason I'm asking is that my water pump must have seized, and shredded both belts. So I can't tell how they were routed.

Note that the idler ulley can be "missing" on some cars , as long as you don't have a hydraulic tensioner it's nothing to worry about

Thanks so much guys. For some reason I kept getting DIY here telling you to take a picture of the routing prior to taking it off. Which of course doesn't help me.

Big thumbs up. Thanks again.
