Is serpentine belt directional?

Hello everyone,

Is the Porsche brand serpentine belt directional?
If so, which is the correct way to install?

Thanks in advance.

The direction only matters if you are reinstalling a used belt.

Thank you Paul.
I remember reading it some where that it did matter and now I know why.
