Be sure there`s clearance with the belts. Placing it too high on the water pump can cause seriously reduced clearance with the serpentine belt.
The 1990 model year does not use the serpentine belt. Same belt system as the 1989 and earlier cars.

Sounds like either a 1990 that was modified to a S4 set up or a you have a later model.

A 1990 looks like a 1986 thru 1989 model but has the Motronic like the 1991 and later.

If that is the case, the belt I am referring to is not the one for you.

No PS in 1990. I am convinced that not all 1990s were created equal, but that would be a pretty big change!

Seller probably looked at the build date and not the model year date. If the engine had the 1990 crank pulley on it. You can just about name your on price for it. As its a one year only pulley.

Most likely. Discussions around that subject have come up before. I believe most model year 1990 cars were build in 1989. Mine was - in September.
