Remove electric fans Remove timing belt covers Get belt from Subaru (don't use aftermarket belts) Line marks on belt up with marks on crank and cam pulleys Turn engine over by hand two rotations Make sure marks still line up Reassemble While you're in there, good idea to replace the cam and crank seals It's not an easy job, and is best left to a qualified certified Subaru techncian unless you are mechanically inclined (I'd recommend at least getting an owner's workshop manual before attempting it) For a more in-depth guide, see

Replacing the timing belt is a complicated procedure that is impossible to describe in this small space. The engine in your Subaru is an INTERFERENCE engine. As such if they belt is installed incorrectly and you start the engine you will do damage. I suggest you purchase Haynes or Chiltons repair manual for your car. It will describe in detail with photos how to replace the cam belt.

Remove the timing belt cover. There should be a pully that will ratched in and out to tighten and loosen the belt.

You don't "set" a timing belt. There is no adjustment, either it's right or it's not. You change a timing belt at whatever interval Subaru recommends for your Forester. --Ken
