18.   Remove the electronic ignition (EI) coil cover.

19.   Remove the engine upper cover.

20.   Disconnect the variable cam timing (VCT) valve electrical connector.

21.    CAUTION: Do not pull the cable when removing the spark plug connectors. If necessary, remove the ignition cables from the ignition coil to avoid kinking the cables. Turn the spark plug connectors slightly before removing to loosen the seal.

 CAUTION: Pull off the spark plug connectors in line with the spark plugs.

NOTE: Loosening sequence: from the outside to the inside, working diagonally.

Remove the valve cover.

1.       Disconnect the spark plug connectors.

2.       Detach the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) hose.

3.       Remove ten bolts.

22.   Remove the spark plugs.

23.   Turn the engine to TDC on cylinder number 1.

24.   Detension the timing belt (timing belt shown removed for clarity).

1.       Loosen the bolt four turns.

2.       Position the tensioner so that the locating tab is at approximately the 4 o'clock position.

3.       Line up the hexagonal key slot in the tensioner adjusting washer with the pointer that is located behind the pulley.

25.   Remove the timing belt.

26.   NOTE: Use an open ended wrench to prevent the camshaft from rotating.

Remove the intake camshaft pulley blanking plug.

27.   NOTE: Use an open ended wrench to prevent the camshaft from rotating.

Loosen the camshaft pulley retaining bolts.

Installation

1.       NOTE: Do not tighten the bolts. The camshaft timing pulleys must be able to turn freely on the camshafts.

Turn the camshafts to the ignition position on cylinder No. 1 and insert the special tool into the camshafts.

2.       Rotate the crankshaft to TDC on cylinder No. 1.

3.       Remove the blanking plug, install the special tool.

4.        CAUTION: Do not kink the timing belt (do not bend the timing belt less than a diameter of 35 mm).

 CAUTION: Do not rotate the crankshaft, check that it is still resting against the timing pin.

NOTE: The lug of the belt tensioner must not be hooked into the sheet metal cover during timing belt installation.

Install a new timing belt.

Starting from the crankshaft timing belt pulley and working counterclockwise install the timing belt, keeping it under tension.

5.        CAUTION: Incorrect timing belt tension will result in incorrect valve timing.

Pretension the timing belt.

1.       Rotate the tensioner locating tab counterclockwise and insert the locating tab into the slot in the rear timing cover.

2.       Position the hexagonal key slot in the tensioner adjusting washer to the 4 o'clock position.

3.       Tighten the attaching bolt enough to seat the tensioner firmly against the rear timing cover, but still allow the tensioner adjusting washer to be rotated using a 6 mm hexagonal key.

6.        CAUTION: Tension the timing belt, working counterclockwise.

Using the hexagonal key, rotate the adjusting washer counterclockwise until the notch in the pointer is centered over the index line on the locating tab (the pointer will move clockwise during adjustment).

7.       Tighten the bolt, while holding the adjusting washer in position.

8.       NOTE: Use an open ended wrench to prevent the camshaft from rotating.

Tighten the camshaft pulley retaining bolts.

9.       NOTE: Use an open ended wrench to prevent the camshaft from rotating.

Install the intake camshaft pulley blanking plug.

10.   Remove the special tool.

11.   Remove the special tool 303-465 from the camshafts.

12.   NOTE: Turn the crankshaft two revolutions in the normal direction of rotation.

Check the valve timing by inserting the special tool. Correct it if necessary.

Install the special tool and make sure that the it is contact with the crankshaft.

Install the special tool into the camshafts; if necessary loosen the timing pulleys and correct the camshaft alignment.

Remove the special tools.

13.   Install the special tool.

14.   Install the spark plugs.

15.    CAUTION: Use a blunt object (a plastic cable tie) to apply the silicone grease, to avoid damaging the spark plug connectors.

 CAUTION: Push on the spark plug connectors, keeping them in line with the spark plugs.
