Timing Belt: Fundamentals and Basics
Initial Preparations

INITIAL PREPARATIONS

Disconnect Battery

When working near or around the crankshaft/camshaft pulleys, accidentally engaging the starter can result in serious personal injury and major
engine damage.

The negative battery terminal should be disconnected prior to commencing work and should not be reconnected until the timing belt is
re-installed and the engine is ready to start.

Remove Front Tire

Access to lower timing belt components can be gained by removing the associated front tire (or turning the wheels fully outward) and working
through the wheel well.

Fender Covers

Fender covers will prevent damage to the vehicles finish while performing the job.
