This Should Be A Rear Wheel Drive. You Will Need To Remove The Radiator, Water Hoses, Remove The Water Pump, The Harmonic Balancer. This Is The Wheel Like Thing On The Crankshaft. There Is A Bolt Rather Large. 1 3/4 Inch Or So. You Will Need To Remove The Bolt, Then Be Carful Pulling The Harmonic Balancer Off. You Will Need A Set Of Pullers For This. It Would Be Best If You Remove & Clean Your Oil Pan. If Not Loosen It & Drop It Down In The Frond. Remove The Bolts On The Timing Chain Cover. Remove Cover Do Not Bend While Removing. Remove Bolt In Cam. Remove Cam Gear & Crankshaft Gear With Timing Chain. Buy A New One With Both New Gear !!! Be Sure To Get Steel Gears. `Bout Out Of Room, They Can Tell You Where To Place Marks On Gears. Put It Back In Reverse Order. I Suggest You Let A Good Mechanic Do This. It Can Be A Pain & Easy To Screw It Up GOOD LUCK
