Are you asking where the throw out bearing is located?
If so, removal of your transmission is necessary to access it. It will be on your input shaft of your tranny behind your clutch. Its on the other side of your clutch fork.
Remove the exhaust side spark plugs, outer timing belt cover, and crankshaft pulley.
Turn the crankshaft until the number one piston is at top dead center (TDC).
CAUTION The camshaft belt tensioner tool (303-097) can be damaged when trying to relieve belt tension if you attempt to remove the belt without first loosening both the timing belt tensioner adjusting bolt and the spring pivot bolt.
Loosen the timing belt spring pivot bolt, but do not remove it at this point in the procedure.
Loosen the adjusting bolt slowly and release the spring tension.
Turn the tensioner with the camshaft belt tensioner tool (303-097), against the spring pressure, clockwise to the farthest position.
While holding it in this position, tighten the adjusting bolt to hold the tensioner away from the belt.
Remove the timing belt.
Be certain that on piston number one, the crankshaft is at TDC with the crankshaft keyway pointing straight up and the circle on the crankshaft sprocket lined up with the notch on the engine front cover.
Line up the timing marks.
Install the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket going counterclockwise over the oil pump sprocket and over the camshaft sprocket.
Loosen the bolt allowing the tensioner pulley to press against the timing belt.
NOTE: The timing belt tensioner should not be tightened or the belt tension will not be evenly distributed over the whole belt.
Turn the crankshaft two revolutions clockwise. Next, slowly bring the crank to the number one position firing position with the keyway on the crank facing up. The dot on the crankshaft gear is lined up with the notch on the front cover.
Check the timing mark alignment again. If necessary, repeat the procedure.
Tighten the bolts. Torque the pivot bolt to 30-40 ft-lb (40-55 Nm). Torque the adjustment/locking bolt to 26-33 ft-lb (35-45 Nm).
Install the crankshaft pulley and tighten the bolt. Torque to 93-121 ft-lb (125-165 Nm).
Install the outer timing belt cover and tighten the bolt. Torque to 70-106 in-lb (8-12 Nm).

I am showing a 2.5 engine in a Mazda truck, but its generally the same as a 2.3.
Its not supposed to be an interference engine, so no damage should have occured when the belt broke. Its possible the cam gear is 180 degrees off, but if the marks are lined up by the book it should be correct. Its very possible the marks are a few teeth off since the cam gear can move when the tensioner is released.
Checking compression on all 4 cylinders will tell you if the valves are in the right place.
