Shouldn't be hard on any car. If the engine is the same as the 2001 1.6L DOHC it actually has 3 belts plus the timing belt (which is difficult to get at).

Then you stick a big screwdriver in the cutout, remove the...

how do you line up the timing marks 2.3 jtd
  == Answer ==     It has a timing chain
It has electronic ignition the timing is adjusted by the cam and crank sensor and regulated by the ecm. In short you can't without messing with the timing belt and since it has an interference engine (the pistons can hit the valves) I would suggest it.
