Testimonial: "I knew nothing about the engine in the 2005 Chevy Aveo LT, with a 1.6 dual overhead cam engine. But when I went to your Fixya site it help me find the problem.The right side tensioner has a plastic cap over the bearing for the belt to ride on. The plastic came apart causing to belt to slip off the tensioner, causing the belt to lose it's timing, this intern caused the valves and pistons to come together, bending the valves. This engine by the way has the interference head on it. I am now in the process of having the head rebuilt, hoping that after the head is removed, the pistons are ok. This site helped me learn a lot about this engine and the problems that can result if the timing belt breaks or come off the tensioner. I thank you very much for your help in this matter. I will pass on the FIXYA site to my friends. Again I thank you for the help. Jerry."

The crankshaft gear has a triangle timing mark on it. On the outside of the gear near the teeth. This points straight down, and lines up with a notch, on the bottom of the rear timing cover.
The camshafts have a mark on the outside of the gear, near the teeth. The camshafts are turned, so that the marks are to the inside, (in-between the gears), and the marks point to each other.

NOW. These cars are notorious for timing belts snapping and GM has advised to replace at 60K. I have this car and it has an interference engine, meaning that if the belt snaps there is a good chance the engine's pistons will bend the intake/exhaust valves, meaning you would have to have the engine rebuilt if this happens.
I am about to have mine changed, along with the water pump and tensioner since the water pump should be replaced before 100,000 and involves the same labor. I've found that at a Chevy dealership the whole package ranges from $500-$800 depending on who you call.

I have looked and looked for this myself. I belive since one of the wires runs to the ecu. for the acc power it is branched off of some other . If you need a good reliable place to pull power. Use the power windows Breaker / fuse its on the passanger side it is on acc power for the key.
The other Direct battery feed for the radio is protected in the left fuse box on the drivers side.
