You start by removing the air breather, then you remove the 8 nuts holding the top of the motor to the motor mount.Remove the motor mount..You will have to remove the radiator plastic fill bottle to get to the motor mount.Release the tension from the serpentine belt and remove it.You need to remove the harmonic balancer and the water punp pulley..This should allow you to remove the plastic covers from the front of the engine exposing the timing belt...
