    Here you go dude.... http://ken-gilbert.com/wrx/mans/2%20...C%20ENGINE.PDF ...These belts are easy as pie to replace.....remember 1/2 inch of deflection for every 12 inches of free length is the proper adjustment.... the only thing i will add to this is.....
    belt cover bolts: 10mm (with the exception of the one that goes threw the alternator (12mm)
    Lock bolts: 12mm
    Adjusting bolts:12mm
    as for the drivers idler pulley lock bolt for the AC..if you have a zero offset long reach 12mm wrench it makes the job 1,000,000 times easier....
