SOURCE: can't get the timing belt on
Loosen the two bolts that locate the spring tensioner and twist it to one side to allow you enough room to get the belt on, then release it and clamp it tight again.

The timiing is set by aliging the timing marks on the cam with the timing marks on the crank -- then the belt goes on.

Rotate the engine so that No. 1 cylinder is at TDC on the
compression stroke. Check that the timing marks are aligned on the
camshaft and crankshaft pulleys. An access plug is provided in the cam
belt cover so that the camshaft timing can be checked without removal
of the cover or any other parts. Set the crankshaft to TDC by aligning
the timing mark on the crank pulley with the TDC mark on the belt
cover. Look through the access hole in the belt cover to make sure that
the timing mark on the cam drive sprocket is lined up with the pointer
on the inner belt cover.
The spring cannot be used to set belt tension; a wrench must be used on the tensioner assembly.

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove accessory drive belt.
Remove the timing belt cover.
Align the timing mark on the camshaft sprocket with the timing mark on the cylinder head.
Confirm that the timing mark on the crankshaft sprocket is aligned with the timing mark on the oil pump housing.
Loosen the belt tensioner attaching bolt.
Pry the tensioner away from the timing belt and tighten the attaching bolt.
Remove the spark plugs.
Remove the RH engine mount and raise the vehicle.
Remove the splash shield.
Remove the crankshaft damper.
Remove the timing belt.
Note: Do not mix 1/2 round and trapazoidal belt tooth profiles. This can cause premature belt wear, also the belt is meant to run in a dry environment. For maximum belt life, no oil or belt dressing compound should be applied to the timing belt.
Install the timing belt over the sprockets in a counterclockwise direction starting at the crankshaft. Keep the belt span from the crankshaft to the camshaft tight while installing over the remaining sprocket.
Loosen the belt tensioner attaching bolt, allowing the tensioner to snap against the belt.
CAUTION: Do not rotate crankshaft with the spark plugs installed .
Note: Do not turn the engine counterclockwise to line up the timing marks. After rotation, recheck camshaft timing marks for alignment. This will verify that the belt has not skipped a tooth during rotation.
Rotate the crankshaft clockwise two complete revolutions (720 degrees) stopping at top dead center. This will allow the tensioner spring to load the timing belt.
Tighten the belt tensioner attaching bolt to 23-30 Nm (17-22 lb-ft) .
Install the crankshaft damper.
Install the splash shield.
Lower the vehicle.
Install the RH engine mount.
Install the spark plugs.
Install the timing belt cover.
Install the accessory drive belt automatic tensioner.
Install the accessory drive belt.
Connect the negative battery cable.
