10. Install the camshaft holder tool.
11. Remove the crankshaft pulley, it is secured by eight allen bolts. It is a good idea to replace these. NOTE: pulley can only be installed one way. ANOTHER NOTE: when you remove the bolts you may find that the pulley is stuck. You can use a pry bar or big screw driver to carefully nudge the pulley out. FINAL NOTE: You may have to move the AC lines out of the way to remove the crankshaft pulley - they are secured with one 10mm nut.
12. Remove the last timing cover that is held by two more 10mm bolts.
13. If you are going to reuse the hydraulic dampener, then de-tension the belt by rotating the tensioner roller clockwise (using an allen key) until you can insert a pin through the top hole of the dampener. Then remove -
- Timing belt
- (1) idler roller
- (2) tensioner roller
- (3) tensioner relay
- (4) hydrallic dampener (if you are replacing it)
14. If you are changing the water-pump, then remove the 9 mounting bolts and the 2 nuts. To get to one of the water pump bolts you will have to remove the power steering pump pulley (1). After you remove the three allen bolts you will likely find that the pulley is frozen solid. Remember, it is not pressed in, so grab a pry-bar and gently pry it out. Just to the left of the water pump is the thermostat housing - it is secured by two more bolts.
Installing The Water Pump, Thermostat, and Timing Components
1. Here you can see the water pump is removed and a new thermostat installed. NOTE: Install thermostat first, then o-ring, then thermostat cover.
2. Install water-pump and torque bolts to 7 lb-ft.
3. Install the rest of the timing components. Torque -
- idler roller - 33 lb-ft.
- tensioner roller - 15 lb-ft.
- tensioner relay - no torque provided
- hydrallic dampener (tensioner) - 7 lb-ft.
4. Before you can install the timing belt you will have to loosen the camshaft sprockets. With the camshaft tool in place, loosen the camshaft bolts and back them out about 5 turns - this will give you enough slack so you can pop the sprockets loose. Remove the camshaft tool. Because the sprockets are pressed in you will have to get a puller and pop them loose. When I say pop, I mean it, you will hear a loud pop. Once you pull the sprockets free - hand tighten the bolts back in. At this point you should be able to rotate the sprockets by hand.
