Does the serpentine belt run anything other then the alternator and A/C in an '08 2.2L?

I know the power steering is electric but wasn't sure if any other systems.

Crank, A/C, Alternator, idler. That's all the pulleys on the car. Water pump is chain driven internally, I believe.

Just A/C, alternator. Water pump is on the "back side" of the engine, next to the firewall.

So theoretically speaking if my serpentine belt broke the car would continue to run on whatever charge the battery had at the time without any damage to the car itself?

From looking at the Haynes manual, the water pump is chain driven. A royal ass pain to remove, and a few special tools also.

Okay, so I was right then, haha. And yes, they generally suck to remove.
