Sometimes you can go to the dealer and the will make a copy of the instructions on how to do it caution if you do it yourself you might need a tool to hold the crank still to get the crank bolt out if the dealer wont help call around to the part stores you should be able to get a service manual this will give you the instructions

    • 9Line up the crankshaft timing pulley groove with the oil pump by rotating the engine to the right.

How to remove serpentene belt in a 2003 ford focus

There are 6 possibilities, here are the 3 engines with A/C...




Consulting your owner's manual should give you an idea of how to replace a belt depending on which belt it is that needs changing. Assuming it is the timing belt that needs to be changed it is a simple process to undertake, though if you are unsure of working on motor cars it may be better to take the vehicle to a garage for professionals to carry out the work.

Firstly check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing belt. Replacement for a Ford Focus is at 120,000 miles. You need to locate the timing belt and examine it for breaks, damage, fraying, worn spots or looseness.

Disengage the negative battery cable in all models. Detach the passenger inner splash-shield and wheel cover, the accessory drive and timing belts, the tensioner and the crankshaft pulley. Remove the spark plugs, catalytic converter and idler pulley in 2000 and older Ford Focuses. Undo the retaining fasteners and lift the timing belt cover off the engine. Align the crank and camshaft timing marks. Older models call for undoing the water pump pulley and valve cover before locking the camshaft in place. Release the tensioner's bolt. Turn the arm to the right 14 degrees and place a 1/8 inch drill bit in the opening. This secures the belt tensioner in place; you can now take the belt off.

Once you have fitted the new belt you can re-assemble the parts which have been removed in the reverse order.

Hope helps.

I am in the middle of replacing the timing belt on a 05 honda odyssey touring, before removing the old belt, the manual is saying to turn the crankshaft pulley to its white mark [which i can see] lines up...

Remember that for every rotation of the cam there two rotations of the crank. Rotate the crank a further 360 and bring the piston to TDC and the white mark should now align on the cam.

Alternator belt replacement

Check Your Timing Belt
  • Check your owner's manual for the recommended mileage for replacing your timing belt. Replacement for Hyundai Sonatas is 60,000 miles.
  • Locate the timing belt and examine it for breaks, damage, fraying, worn spots or looseness.
  • Inspect the belt for cracked or missing teeth that may be the result of foreign material collecting between them.
  • Determine if the timing belt damage is on both sides. Single-side damage may be caused by the timing belt's guide.
    Remove Your Timing Belt

  • Disengage the negative battery cable.
  • Turn the tensioner arm to the right 14° and take the timing belt off its pulley.
  • Take out the coolant pump, idler, tensioner and crankshaft pulleys and both timing belt covers.
  • Remove the engine's mounting insulator and mount bracket and the auto tensioner.
  • Align the crankshaft's timing mark so the first cylinder piston is at "Top Dead Center" (TDC). The camshaft sprocket and cylinder head cover timing marks also should align.
  • Unfasten the timing belt.

    Replace Your Timing Belt

  • Examine the cam and crankshaft sprockets. Replace if there is excessive wear or other damage.
  • Position the new timing belt on the sprockets.
  • Relax the timing belt tensioner so it can make contact with the belt. Adjust the belt to the tension recommended in your vehicle owner's manual. Also align the timing indicators on the cam, crank and other sprockets.
  • Return the engine to the 0° mark by turning it two revolutions in the direction of travel.
  • Secure the timing belt cover and reinstall whatever was removed to access the timing cover.
  • Reconnect the negative battery cable and any other items that were disconnected.
  • Start the engine and look for leaks

Next maintenance on a 2002 Honda Odyssey

I would do it as soon as you get it, because you never know when the previous owner took the car in for maintenance.
Typically, you would have:
- oil changed
- check for proper fluid levels
- any visible leaks
- all the bulbs working
- belts are in good condition
- air filter is relativey clean

Most of these should fit under "tune up" just make sure to ask where you get the vehicle serviced what their definition of a "tune up" is.
