Default 98 Volvo S70 T5 Mechanical or Hydraulic tensioner

Looking to do the timing belt and water pump on my S70 in the next few weeks. I've been looking at kits and and some say hydraulic and other say mechanical tensioner. The kit usually says to reference the sticker on the timing belt side, from what I'm understanding, my car has a hydraulic tensioner? Please correct me if I'm wrong, just want to make sure I order the right kit before I start digging into it. Thanks

Cars are old, people change covers, etc. Best to take 5 minutes and pull the cover and look.
