The best thing you can do for yourself is get a manual. There are vehicle specific ones available such as Haynes, that have all info you will need to do that job. Pay careful attention to the correct positioning of crank and cam pulleys If you get it wrong, it may cause larger problems. I suggest that after it has been re-assembled, you turn the engine by hand four full turns, to ensure that valves are not striking pistons.

SOURCE: Focus timing belt replacement.
This is a very very easy timing belt setup. first off you have to remove the valve cover. Then you have to remove the serp belt. Then remove anything thats in your way of the front cover. after you remove the crank pulley re-install the crank bolt. DO NOT LOSEN THE BOLT FOR THE TENSIONER!!!! now spin the crankshaft until the sproket aligns with the timing mark. now at this point the two camshafts should be aligned. now there is a special tool from ford that holds the cam shafts in place. all it is is a 1/4" peice of metal that goes on the left side of the cam shafts to hold them into place. if you mark the cams you wont need the tool. or if you can find something to fit in the left side of the cams that will work too. anyways after that its just the same steps in reverse. very easy to do.
