Turn crankshaft so that timing marks on belt pulley are aligned with marks on engine . The 'I' on intake pulley is on top and the 'E' on exhaust pulley is also on top.Align crankshaft pulley with mark on engine.If your timing belt is broken then major damage to the engine has occored and kiss it good bye.

SOURCE: 2003 kia rio- water pumps
If it is your first time having the timing belt changed, chances are the water pump is still in good enough shape to hold out until you are due for your next belt change. No sense throwing away money prematurely...

you have to take off the speedometer cable/wiring harness from the top of the trans and fill it from there....one 10mm bolt...very awkward spot...it might be snug, so just take a flat head screwdriver from underneath to tap it loose...

Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
Remove or disconnect the following:
Negative battery cable
Right-hand front wheel
Right-hand wheel well side cover
Accessory drive belts
Water pump pulley
Timing belt upper cover
Turn the crankshaft pulley so cylinder No. 1 is at Top Dead Center (TDC). Align the pulley groove with the timing mark "T" of the timing belt cover.
Remove or disconnect the following:
Lower timing belt cover
Timing belt tensioner
Timing belt To install:Align the timing marks of the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets to ensure the No. 1 cylinder is at TDC.Temporarily install the timing belt tensioner.Install the timing belt over the crankshaft sprocket, then inside the idler pulley, over the camshaft sprocket and then inside the timing belt tensioner.Apply tension to the timing belt by turning the tensioner in the clockwise direction so there is no slack in the belt on the tension side.Tighten the tensioner mounting bolts to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).Check the timing belt tension as follows:
1.6L (VIN 3) engine: Push the tension side of the belt in horizontally with a moderate force, the timing belt cog end is approximately 1/2 of the tensioner mounting bolt head radius away from the bolt head center.
2.0L engine: Push the tension side of the belt in horizontally with a moderate force, the timing belt cog end sags approximately 0.16-0.24 inches (4-6 mm).
Turn the crankshaft two turns in the clockwise direction and realign the crankshaft sprocket and camshaft sprocket timing marks.
