Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
Make sure you line the pulley up w/ the keyway, push it straight on as much as you can by hand (can grease the shaft and inside pulley first if you want), then insert the long bolt and crank it down the rest of the way to get the pulley the rest of the way on. an air gun is very useful for this bolt if you have access.

Remove Your Timing Belt
?· 1Disengage the negative battery cable in all models.
?· 2Detach the passenger inner splash-shield and wheel cover, the accessory drive and timing belts, the tensioner and the crankshaft pulley.
?· 3Remove the spark plugs, catalytic converter and idler pulley in 2000 and older Ford Focuses. These models also require the crankshaft be turned to "Top Dead Center" (TOC) and a crankshaft timing peg be inserted. Turn the shaft to the right against the timing peg.
?· 4Undo the retaining fasteners and lift the timing belt cover off the engine. Align the crank and camshaft timing marks. Older models call for undoing the water pump pulley and valve cover before locking the camshaft in place.
?· 5Release the tensioner's bolt. Turn the arm to the right 14 degrees and place a 1/8 inch drill bit in the opening. This secures the belt tensioner in place.
?· 6Take the timing belt off.
Install Your Timing Belt
?· 1Replace the timing belt counterclockwise motion beginning at the crankshaft.
?· 2Unlock the tensioner. Recheck the timing marks by turning the crankshaft two rotations to the right.
?· 3Tauten the tensioner's pulley bolt to 15 to 22 foot pounds (20 to 30 Nm) in 2003 and younger models and to 17 to 20 foot pounds (22 to 28 Nm) in older Focuses. Remove the crankshaft timing peg. Reconnect the crankshaft pulley and secure to 81 to 96 foot pounds (110 to 130 Nm) and 81 to 89 foot pounds (110 to 120 Nm) respectively.
?· 4Replace the splash shield, front wheel, timing belt cover, accessory drive belt and tensioner and any other items that were disconnected.
?· 5Hook up the negative battery cable. Start the engine and check that the timing belt is functioning properly.
