1. Disconnect throttle cable bracket from intake plenum. Remove timing belt. See TIMING BELT. Remove valve cover. R
See Fig. 9.
2. Secure exhaust camshaft at hexagonal area using wrench,  and remove sprocket bolt and sprocket. Repeat procedure for i
front camshaft bearing cap bolts in 3 steps. Remove caps and seals.
3. Repeat procedure for remaining camshaft bearing cap bolts. Remove rear bearing caps last. Remove remaining camshaft
and exhaust camshafts. Remove rocker arms and lash adjusters from cylinder head.
If the rocker arm is damaged then the cam will be also and replaceing one will do absolutely no good.
