Jack up the RF corner of the vehicle and remove the RF wheel. Remove the front motor mount located on the right fender apron and support the engine by the oil pan using a floor jack with a block of wood(You will now be able to jack the engine up and down as you need to). Remove the serpentine belt and if there is a belt tensioner in the way of the timing cover, remove it too. Remove the crankshaft pulley and remove the timing cover. Remove the old belt, and it is recommended that you replace the water pump at this time as well. Line up the crankshft timing mark (the keyway will be pointing straight up), and line up the camshaft timing mark(an arrow cut into one of the windows of the gear lines up witha dot on the cylinder head). Install the new belt ad reaasemble in the reverse order as disassembly.

The water pump should be driven by the timing belt, yes. If you change the water pump, you might wanna change the timing belt and tensioner while you're in there.

there are two tensioners, the serpentine tensioner and the timing belt tensioner. the timing belt tensioner is behind the timing belt cover ;)

The water pump is inside the timing cover and is run by the timing belt. If you are going to replace it, change out the belt at the same time.

Ignition timing is not adjustable. Cam timing is adjustable by the "guess" method unless you are replacing the timing belt and using the timing marks on the belt drive cogs, in which case you need a repair manual that has detailed instructions.

if the timing belt breaks then yes it will throw the timing off.

If this is the European Escort This engine is classed as an interference engine. In the event of belt failiure the valves meet the pistons causing the valves to bend and possibly other engine damage.
