you have to un bolt the motor at motor mounts on passenger side of engine compartmentwith a floor jack under th motor after all mounts are loose rais motor a little until you can remove all the nuts you can from timing cover then lower motor to get to lower nuts and whili motor is lowered do what you got to do with timing belt and water pump the belt is very easy to remove and replace the tensioner is almost self explanatory i highly recomend replacing the water pump while you are there because it is hard to get to later and has not been replaced since last time the timing belt was put on any more questions e-mail me good luck
