it is simple my dear Mr.Flemming. Before you remove the timing belt just be sure the car is working fine without any problem,remove the alternator belt and power steering belt,remove the timing cover and by hand hand using a socket and ratchet turn clockwise to align the marks on the crank shaft and camshaft ( if you have marks.) if not do practical point by removing the first spark plug and by putting in a thin screwdriver turn slowly slowly watching the screwdriver to come out showing the top end of piston and also check the camshaft to have the last piston valves to be on balance. there you can put at the end of the camshaft a bracket thick according to the camshaft end grove . doing so you lock the camshaft.Mark with paint the crank position on the timing belt side sprocket.then you loose the timing tensioner and remove the cam belt. check about the seals of crank shaft and camshaft not leaking if so renew them.renew the tensioner and the belt. tightening the belt on the tensioner there are two tiny holes by using a tool fitted in the holes go clockwise tightening checking with hand the belt tension just the belt could turn on side slightly- and tight the nut. If tension is correct, remove the bracket from the camshaft and do turn two times clockwise and check whether the marks are aligned. Good luck.
