SOURCE: Timing Belt 2002 Mazda 626
re-install belt, lining up the timing marks, crank to TDC #1 cylinder, cma pulleys have marks on them, line them up to the index marks as well. If you have a drive wheel in the air, you can pop the car into 5th gear (make sure it's chocked!) and rotate the wheel to turn the engine for alignment, etc. You can put a wrench/socket on the cam bolt to align it as well.

Dumb question, but, did you happen to the diagram on the underside of the hood, the strut tower towards sides of the motor or on the radiator support.

there is one large bolt 13mm i think near the top and the tensioner on the side. just loosen that baby and push the alternator and take off the blet

Yes, I experienced the same thing with mine... you have to losen the 2 motor mounts on that side and lift the motor up about 3 ". I worked at a garage so I had access to an engine hoist. Try using a jack from underneath. Nice engineering from Mazda!!!

i have a mazda etude/protege 2000 1.6 dohc.
i have the same problem with the belts snapping and the alternator generates a huge amount of heat. apparently this is a comman mazda fault.i'm still battling to cure my problem. there are no tensioner pullies on this belt,as it runs around crank and water pump. it has something to do with the alternator regulator or too much current drawing from somewhere??..
