If you at all are unsure of this replacement and uneasy of doing this replacement yourself (could cause serious car problems - to the point of detonation), take it to a shop!
Engine removal is not required for this procedure.
1. Remove the engine cover.
2. Remove RH front wheel.
3. Remove 2bolts(B) and RH side cover(A).
4. Turn the crankshaft pulley, and align its groove with timing mark “T”of the timing belt cover.
NOTE: ALWAYS TURN CRANKSHAFT CLOCKWISE!
5. Remove drive belt(A) and belt tensioner(B).
6. Remove the engine mount bracket. (Set the jack to the engine oil pan)
NOTE: Place wooden block between the jack and engine oil pan.
(Remove the 2bolts, 2nuts and engine mount bracket(A).)
7. Remove the power steering pump. (See ST group - power steering pump)
8. Remove the 7bolts(B) and timing belt upper cover(A).
9. Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt and crankshaft pulley(A).
10. Remove the drive belt idler pulley(A).
11. Remove the 4bolts(B) and timing belt lower cover(A).
12. Remove the engine support bracket(A).
13. Check that timing marks of the camshaft timing pulleys and cylinder head covers are aligned. If not, turn the crankshaft 1revolution(360°).
14. Remove timing belt tensioner. Alternately loosen the 2bolts, and remove the tensioner(A).
15. Remove the timing belt(A).
NOTE: If the timing belt is reused, make an arrow indicating the turning direction to make sure that the belt is reinstalled in the same direction as before.
16. Remove the tensioner pulley(A) and timing belt idler pulley(B).
17. Remove the crankshaft sprocket.
18. Remove camshaft sprockets. Hold the hexagonal head wrench portion of the camshaft with a wrench and remove the bolt and camshaft sprocket.
CAUTION: Be careful not to damage the cylinder head and valve lifter with the wrench.
Alright so im removing my timing belt so i can be able to remove and replace my rear head but how exactly do i go about removing the crankshaft pulley since wen i go to loosen it with a wrench it just turns left? really confused right now i been looking at the DIY but cant figure this out.. any help or tips with this and the head removal would be awesome. thanks guys!
