If he's a professional mechanic with a licensed shop, have it repaired properly somewhere else and either have them bill him, r take it up with the local BBB or state bureau of automotive repair.

Yeah, I know. Not great news, but that's the best we have for you. If the mechanic that did the work originally messed something up, he is liable, if you have a signed work order from the shop. Some states don't always require the work order. Especially if you have proof of payment.

Ok. The image above shows the marks. But he needs the locking bar to keep the gears from turning while he installs the belt.

Your model might be locked up? What's he mean by that? That he seriously messed up your engine?

I agree. Whenever the variable valve timing unit hub is removed you need the cam lock tool to reinstall it since there is no guide on the cam itself. So he needs the proper tools to set the timing. I agree with rivermikerat that you should just take it to another shop that can do the job and send this guy the bill if he cant fix it right?
