Your timing belt is behind the pulleys and belt and you will have to remove the plastic cover to get to the timing belt Caution though because if you set the timing belt wrong or if it broke the chances are you will have to remove the head because the neon engine is a interference engine this meaning the pistons with hit the valves. If you are not skilled enough to tackle this job I would take it to a mechanic to do the repair,,

Replace alternater

Alternator, Replace
Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Versa SL 1.8 L4 GAS
Remove front passenger wheel. To the right of the shock/spring housing you'll see two plastic pins. This holds the splash shield in place, remove them & open the splash shield. Using a 14mm wrench, put it at about 4 o'clock on the spring tensioner arm & pull down. This relives tension on the belt, slide the belt off the wheel that's to the right of tensioner. Go under the hood, using a 10mm socket disconnect neg side of terminal on the battery. These other steps are to allow room to work & space to remove alternator. Next remove the 2 bolts on the nissan plastic engine cover housing & the engine cover housing BRACKET that's located at the front LEFT corner of the valve cover. Unbolt ground strap that's located on the cars frame right behind the left headlight, in addition left to ground bolt, unbolt the bracket that supports the a/c line. Remove radiator reservoir tank, disconnect belt & wires from the alt. The two 13mm bolts on the alt use a wrench. When loosen then use a 1/4 ratchet with a 13mm socket. Slide bolts out as FAR as possible. Now you should be able to wiggle out alt & bolts as one piece. I had to use a long screw driver/bar to dislodge alt. Install in reverse order. Total time took me about an hour.

Timing belt replace escort 2000 engine

Don't know what answer your looking for !

I would ask -- why did the belt break,I change them
every 6 years & inspect a couple times a year

You remove the belt & debris from it,replace the
broken cover if necessary, with a used one, & replace
any damaged sensor & repair any wiring

If you never work on your own vehicles,then we can't
direct a repair shop as to how to do what they choose to do

If you need to do a timing belt, then you watch a You Tube
Video about that, on your specific car & the diagram should
be on the belt sleeve, if you get a gates or quality belt

Need to replace water pump in2005 kia sedona

The kia sedona water pump is an internal pump and needs to be replaced with timing belt service. if it is leaking, then you need to change the timing belt as well. probably not something you want to do in the back yard and will run you between 400 and 600 depending on your location and shop.

Bought new battery but car won't start. Is it the timing chain?

Take the timing belt cover off to inspect the condition of the belt. Look for any missing teeth & tauntness of belt. You may have to replace it.The engine may be out of time with the cam shaft. It's hard to go any futher without knowing engine size. Good luck!

Cannot locate waterpump--leaking & need to replace gasket please help

It should be behind a mounting plate on the belt side of the motor. Depending on the size of motor it may be behind timing chain/belt cover.

Timing Belt Problem-6 cylinder Saturn wont' start

If your timing belt broke, then it is possible that the valves in your engine got bent, which won't allow the cylinders to pressurize the fuel/air mixture, and it will let all of the mix to flow freely into the intake/exhaust manifold. This can be checked with a pressure tester that is threaded into the spark plug opening. A mechanic should have one, or you can probably find one at an auto parts store.
