INSPECTION 
SPROCKETS AND TENSIONER PULLEY, AND IDLER PULLEY.
  1. Check the camshaft sprocket, crankshaft sprocket, tensioner pulley, and idler pulley for abnormal wear, cracks, or damage. Replace as necessary.

  1. Inspect the tensioner pulley and the idler pulley for easy and smooth rotation and check for play or noise. Replace as necessary.

  1. Replace if there is a grease leak.

TIMING BELT 
  1. Check the belt for oil or dust deposits. Replace, if necessary. Small deposits should be wiped away with a dry cloth or paper. Do not clean with solvent.

  1. When the engine is overhauled or belt tension adjusted, carefully check the belt. If any of the following flaws are evident, replace the belt.

    Description
    Flaw conditions
    Hardened back surface
    Back surface glossy. Non-elastic and so hard that when your fingernail is pressed into it, no mark is produced.
    Cracked back surface rubber
    Cracked or separating canvas
    Badly worn teeth (initial stage)
    Canvas on load side tooth flank worn (Fluffy canvas fibers, rubber gone and color changed to white, and unclear canvas texture)
    Badly worn teeth (last stage)
    Canvas on load side tooth flank worn down and rubber exposed (tooth width reduced)
    Cracked tooth bottom
    Missing tooth
    Side of belt badly worn
    NOTE
    Normal belt should have precisely cut sides as if cut by a sharp knife.

    Side of belt cracked

DISASSEMBLY 
  1. Remove the crankshaft pulley, coolant pump pulley and drive belt.

  1. Remove the timing belt cover.

  1. Remove the timing belt tensioner pulley.

  1. Remove the timing belt.

    NOTE
    If the timing belt is reused, make an arrow indicating the turning direction (or the front of the engine) to make sure that the belt is reinstalled in the same direction as before.
  1. Remove the idler pulley.

  1. Remove the camshaft sprocket.

    NOTE

REASSEMBLY 
  1. Install damper pulley flange and crankshaft sprocket as shown. Pay close attention to their mounting direction.

  1. Install the camshaft sprocket and tighten the bolt, to the specified torque.

    TORQUE SPECIFICATION
    Camshaft sprocket bolt 100-120 Nm ( 1000-1200 kg·cm, 74-89 lb·ft )
  1. Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket and crankshaft sprocket with the No. 1 piston placed at top dead center and its compression stroke.

  1. Install the timing belt tensioner and idler pulley.

  1. Install the timing belt on the camshaft

  1. Install the timing belt on the crankshaft.

When the timing belt is installed on the camshaft sprocket, make sure that the tension side is tighten the timing belt tensioner pulley pushing toward the water pump.

  1. Turn the crankshaft one turn in operating direction (clockwise) and realign crankshaft sprocket timing mark.

    CAUTION
    Do not turn the crankshaft in a counterclockwise direction. the crankshaft should be turned smoothly.
    TORQUE SPECIFICATION
    Tensioner pulley installing bolt 43-55 Nm ( 430-550 kg·cm, 32-41 lb·ft )
  1. Then recheck the belt tension. The tension side of timing belt is pushed in horizontally with a moderate force [approx. 2kg (20N, 5lb)], the timing belt cog end is approx. 4-6mm (0.18-0.24 in.) away.

  1. Install the timing belt cover.

    TORQUE SPECIFICATION
    Timing belt cover bolt 8-10 Nm ( 80-100 kg·cm, 6-7.4 lb·ft )
  1. Install the crankshaft pulley. In this case, make sure that the crankshaft sprocket pin fits the small hole in the pulley.

    TORQUE SPECIFICATION
    Crankshaft pulley bolt 170-180 Nm ( 1700-1800 kg·cm, 125-133 lb·ft )
  1. Install the coolant pump pulley.

  1. Install the drive belt and adjust the belt tension.
