Check out www.realoem.com Enter your VIN or plug in the info. Under the Engine tab there is a selection for the Alt/water pump. There is a picture of how the belt is routed.

Additionally you can get a good idea how the belt is routed by looking at the groove/smooth pulleys. The groove side of the belt goes to the gooved pulleys. The smooth pulleys then ride on the opposite side.
