Question about 2007 Hyundai Accent GS Hatchback
Yes, it is alright to rotate the motor backwards that one tooth (1/4 inch or so) to position the crank shaft back to top dead center for timing belt replacement. If you were to turn the motor one full rotation to realign the timing marks, you risk bending one or more valves. Be sure when sliding the belt on, the long straight section of belt is tight, the marks are aligned, and the tensioner is locked in the loosest position for the maximum amount of slack. Always double and triple check your bolt tightness and alignment marks to decrease the possibility of problems after firing up the motor.
