Question about Daewoo Nubira
There should be marks stamped into the cam and crank gears that need to line up with corresponding marks on the backing plate before you remove the cambelt.
If there are no markings, you need to make your own.
Rotate crank until at TDC (reinstall the crank drivebelt pulley loosely and front cover to do this, then take them off again)
Once at TDC, use correction fluid and mark the crank position twice - once on the crank gear itself and a corresponding mark on the backing plate.
Ditto for the cam gear.
Make sure these marks are aligned when cambelt is replaced, turn engine one full revolution when new cambelt is on to double check marks line up where they should and you're good to go.
Sometimes the cam isn't marked but the crank gear is. In that case line up the crank gear and use the above step to mark the cam gear.
Be precise as the cam gear will most likely move when you take the cambelt off due to tension from the cam on the rockers
Hope this helps :)
