completely differant car. all you really need to do on those is remove  the cooling fan assembly for some added room. the 12v cars always were  my favorite to change t-belts on !! on the 100/a6 cars, you didnt have  to remove anything !! other than move the a/c hose that runs in front  of the crank that is !!
