Default 2001 timing belt 1st or 2nd type

hi my recently bought 2001 limited needs a new waterpump . I plan to replace putting in the timing belt kit at the same time. I am reading that there are two different kits the early, or 1st one, and a later or 2nd model. Can someone tell me, how to tell, which one is in my car? I removed the top portion of the belt guard to take a peek but i dont know what to look for or if I can see it from there. The door sticker says the date of manufacture was 9/00, so I think its the 1st model, but I would like to be sure so I can order the parts and have them on hand before taking it apart.

A small modification to the back cover and you can use the new version. But you will have the first version on it now. There are some how to on the job as well on here.

it's only the plastic that needs to be cut? seems easy enough. i'd do it.

What mod for the timing belt cover for new style tensioner?
