After you remove the timing belt cover you will see the two small gear wheels on the top of the engine, there should be, just above the center bolts of the gears, a little raised bump or notch these are the TDC (top dead center) marks they should also have a corresponding mark on the engine housing that they will need to be pointed at. As well the crank wheel also has similar marks. These all need to be TDC. You will then thread the belt onto the gears, keeping it tight, from the crank, over the two cams, passed the tensioner and back to the crank. Turn the crank by hand two complete turns using a breaker bar and socket on the crank shaft bolt. Look at the marks and they all should be back at TDC, if not repeat the process until they are. If they are try starting the engine. A timing gun may be needed to fine tune it but it should be close enough to run. Good luck
