If the diagrams are not correct, they are similar. Before removing the belts, make sure you turn the crankshaft till you have the marks lined up accordingly.

After installation, manually turn the crankshaft 2 turns clockwise and recheck the marks. If they are off, it means you have not installed them correctly.

Why do you need to replace the gears? If you have to, after removing the gears, reinstall them and turn them to the correct position for installing the belt. No difference.

There is no guide on the cams to install the gears if you remove them. You will need the cam lock tool to lock cams in place. If the cams are not in there correct position you could damage the valves because vehicle is not properly timed. You can look for the tool online but will run you somewhere between $300-$600 dollars. The tool will come with the cam and crank lock. F you are trying to remove the exhaust cvvt and intake cam gear for an oil leak then replace the cvvt hub also along with the seals. Those things always start to leak after 100k miles. I Hope these info helps and good luck to you.
