Default FSM picture of front brake caliper hose routing?

I recently had all my brake hoses replaced at a local shop as a preventative measure and now I noticed a grinding nose when I turn sharply left or right. I believe this is because the new hoses were installed 180 degrees out of the correct position with the loop facing the front vs. back. Does anyone have a picture from the Saturn FSM they could send me of the proper routing I can use to give the shop?

I'd like to have them correct the problem on their nickel.

The brake line loop should be facing the rear of the car.

Understood, but does anyone have a picture from the Saturn FSM I can send to the shop?

Front gets looped to the rear, rear gets sent to the middle.

Thanks a ton, fetchitfido, just what the doctor ordered!!!!

Hopefully I won't get any guff from the shop, but given how rarely I've had the car in the shop in the past 25 years, it's kinda sad to see such a mess-up. Most everything else I've done myself with the help from Old Nuc (RIP), RichPin, and others!

Oh well!

The caliper needs to come off and be rotated 360 degrees to make the brake line tuck in behind the strut rear facing.
