SOURCE: S70 GLT head replacement
the easiest way to remove the head is to completely remove the exhaust manifold from the engine and turbo assy. you CAN just unbolt it from the engine , but it takes a good bit of wiggling to get it off if you are leaving thre manifold in the car

SOURCE: I am replacing the timing
I replaced mine on the same car. I borrowed the NAPA timing belt book to get the timing marks. There are three that need to be aligned. I would suggest going to NAPA to buy the belt ($25) and while there, ask to see that book so you can write down the timing marks. The mark on the crank shaft gear is on the inside of the gear, while the cam gear is on the outside of the gear. Or, you could just buy the book. It's still a lot cheaper than paying someone to replace the belt.

Not sure if it is possible to have it run smoothly by being off a tooth.
The hash marks on the cam pulleys line up with the timing belt cover that goes over those pulleys. Should be two notches in the cover.
As for the lower marks...those aren't really visible till the lower aux. belt pulley is removed. Then you'll have a clear view of the line up marks. One on the inside and one on the outter area of the pulley itself.
When you put the t-belt on...it is a good idea to replace the tensioner as well.
Also when you have the new belt on...adjust the tensioner so that the handle looking thing is centered between the two notches that hold the tensioner in place to the block.
After putting all that together, its a good idea to rotate the timing belt two to four rotations till the marks all line up again. That will let you know if you are hitting the valves or not.
