If you have to ask, you should take it to the shop. Done wrong, timing belts can cause a lot of trouble. I would recomend you get a Chilton's manual from the Library. However, it can be explained simply. The belt is one the side of the engine under a plastic cover. "Simply" remove the cover, release the tensioner and pull of the belt (or what ever is left of it). Install a new belt and retension. !!!WARNING!!! Engine timing must be exact. The Chilton Manual will explain the timing marks found on the sprockets. REMEMBER ON THE 1990 THEIR ARE THE TWO BALANCE SHAFTS WITH ANOTHER BELT BEFORE YOU EVEN GET TO THE TIMING BELT, AFTER THAT THE PROCEDURE IS BASICALLY THE SAME AS FOR A LATER 4 -BANGER Honda(96-2000)
