Replaced the liquid line on the AC.
I had to pull the battery cables away and didn’t get a photo before hand showing the routing.

Could someone get a photo showing the alternator cable tucked in near the air box?

Where does it clip to the power steering hose, or is it clipped to something else?

Does the starter cable go over or under the ac pipe to connect at the positive terminal?

I’ve done image searches for the answers. Nothing helpful.

OK, found something via Auto Instruct.
One question answered. The Starter cable goes over the AC line.

Part of the other is answered, alternator cable goes right of the AC pipe.

I can’t find the harness routing diagram in the factory manual for these components. Can anyone else?
The positive cable from the alternator to the battery post in the engine bay.

Hi Fu, was changoing oil today and remembered your post.
My VF SV6 should be the same as yours for routing. Surprisingly hard to get a proper photo.
My cable goes behind (towards back of car) the alternator cable.

Thanks for that!
I also, just now, found this on the MACE website.
It was for a pod filter and with the airbag gone, I can see exactly the area as well.

Here’s the pathway for that cable.
I can’t get the cable fastener back on though. It connects the cable to the body. No biggie. Might use a cable tie.
I put new tubing on and tape.

The solution:
