You dont have to remove the pulley to take out the timing belt. You can use a 1/4th inch ratchet to pull the pulley. Then the belt will come out

To replace the timing belt back guard you will have to remove both pulleys.There is a small bolt under each pulley holding the belt guard Use a large socket to hold the pulley while you break the bolt loose with a 17mm socket. I have just done this while replacing my head gaskets due to coolant boiling from the gasket leak.

there should be a tensioner, put a wrench on it or ratchet(can even buy the tool at local parts store) spring loaded so u have to give it some muscle

Unbolt air conditioner pump and move it out of the way.
Get under vehicle and remove steering pump bolts and move it out of the way.
Remove 6 crankshaft pulley bolts, should be 12mm.
The engine support bracket shoud come off now.
Remove the main crankshaft bolt.
Remove crankshaft dampener.
Remove the timing cover bolts and take off the covers.
Take off the old belt & replace with a new one, don't use a previously used belt.
Make sure the belt tensioner is installed correctly.
Put all the stuff back on.
Get a Haynes manual, pages 3-41.
