CAUTION:When aligning crankshaft and camshaft timing marks always rotate engine from crankshaft. Camshaft should not be rotated after timing belt is removed. Damage to valve components may occur. Always align timing marks before removing timing belt.
Before the removal of the timing belt, rotate crankshaft until the TDC mark on oil pump housing aligns with the TDC mark on crankshaft sprocket (trailing edge of sprocket tooth)
NOTE:The crankshaft sprocket TDC mark is located on the trailing edge of the sprocket tooth. Failure to align trailing edge of sprocket tooth to TDC mark on oil pump housing will cause the camshaft timing marks to be misaligned.
Install 6 mm Allen wrench into belt tensioner. Before rotating the tensioner, insert the long end of a 1/8” or 3 mm Allen wrench into the pin hole on the front of the tensioner .
While rotating the tensioner counterclockwise, push in lightly on the 1/8” or 3 mm Allen wrench, until it slides into the locking hole.
Remove timing belt. CAUTION:If timing belt was damaged due to incorrect tracking (alignment), the belt tensioner assembly must be replaced
Set crankshaft sprocket to TDC by aligning the sprocket with the arrow on the oil pump housing.
Set camshafts timing marks so that the exhaust camshaft sprocket is a 1/2 notch below the intake camshaft sprocket
CAUTION:Ensure that the arrows on both camshaft sprockets are facing up.
Install timing belt. Starting at the crankshaft, go around the water pump sprocket, idler pulley, camshaft sprockets and then around the tensioner
Move the exhaust camshaft sprocket counterclockwise to align marks and take up belt slack. NOTE:A new tensioner is held in the wound position by a pull pin.
Remove the pull pin or Allen wrench from the belt tensioner.
Once the timing belt has been installed and tensioner released, rotate the crankshaft two (2) complete revolutions. Verify that the TDC marks on crankshaft and timing marks on the camshafts are aligned as shown in .

Depends on whether you have A/C or not. There is only one serpentine belt that drives the power steering, alternator, water pump, and A/C if so equipped. Both the width and the length are different. Just tell the parts person you talk to the year and make of your car and whether or not it has A/C and they will be able to fix you up.
i have changed the pressure sensor switch on my 2001 PT Cruiser (B). to
find it you will have to put the car on ramps and go under the car
until your under the cross member (right behind the front wheel) it
will be just behind the cross member closer to the driver side wheel.
remember once you remove the sensor gravity will work against you and
power steering fluid will pour out of the sensor hole. and when under a
car there is really no place to go and if your not careful you will have
to resign yourself to being covered in fluid. good luck!
