Replacing the timing belt on a Ford Contour involves removing the right motor mount, removing the serpentine belt, crankshaft pulley, and idler pulleys, removing the upper and lower timing belt covers and loosing the timing belt tensioner. It would be wise to replace the tensioner. The whole kit is about $160. You have to buy a timing tool to properly do the job. Cost about $45. Upon installation the camshafts need to be aligned with the crankshaft using the top dead center timing mark on the crankshaft pulley and slots in the crank shafts. That's where the timing tools come in. The kit has step by step instructions. Total parts will run about $200, but a mechanic is gonna charge $5-600 so it's worth it.
