First thing is go and buy a haynes repair book from the parts store. they cost around 25.00 or so. they are not that bad to change. with that being said. first unhook the battery, and all your belts off the pullies. then take the valve cover off (on some models) and the hard part will be getting the balancer off unless you have a aircompressor. and then around 10 bolts for the plactis cover for the belt. and you will see the belt the is a idler pully and a ten. pully you need to locate the screw for the ten pully and loosen it up so you can slide the belt off. and while you are that far into it. go ahead and replace the water pump that rides on the timing belt.

Timing belt

your best bet if your not familiar with timing belts you might want to have somone more experienced install it for you a job that may cost you a 150.00 to 200.00 could end up costing you a engine timing a motor can be complicated depending on vehicle it is very easy to **** a valve ruin a camshaft, etc those marks need to be right alot of times when you get your marks aligned then you put the tensioner they move and if your not aware could cost you but if you are willing to try your better off getting a illustrated book step by step like haynes or chilton for your year car it will give you step by step and give you cautionsto look for
