I don't know what to do about the buggered star. The belts should be V belts, some will be notched, all should fit in the pulleys with the V into the pulley (wider side out)).

Not sure what you mean by grooved, that sounds more like a serpentine belt, which will go around some pulleys with the grooves to the pulley and others with the grooves out. Our model year should have 5 separate belts rather than a single serpentine. I just went out and looked at mine and all 5 are notched on the inside, smooth on the outside.

What brand of belts did you buy?
