Engine removal is not required for this procedure.
Remove the engine cover (A).

Remove RH front wheel.
Remove 2bolts (B) and RH side cover (A).

Remove the engine mount bracket.
(1) Set the jack to the engine oil pan.

Place wooden block between the jack and engine oil pan.

(2) Remove the bolt(B), three nuts(C, D) and engine mount bracket (A).

(3) Remove the bolt (B) and stay plate (A).

Temporarily loosen the water pump pulley bolts.

Remove alternator belt.
Remove air compressor belt.
Remove power steering belt.
Remove four bolts and water pump pulley.
Remove the four bolts (B) and timing belt upper cover (A).

Turn the crankshaft pulley, and align its groove with timing mark "T"of the timing belt cover.

Remove the crankshaft pulley bolt (B) and crankshaft pulley (A).

Remove the crankshaft flange (A).

Remove the 5bolts (B) and timing belt lower cover (A).

Remove the timing belt tensioner (A) and timing belt (B).

If the timing belt is reused, make an arrow indicating the turning direction to make sure that the belt is reinstalled in the same direction as before.

Remove the bolt (B) and timing belt idler (A).

Remove the crankshaft sprocket (A).

Remove the cylinder head cover.
(1) Remove the spark plug cable.
(2) Remove the accelerator cable (C) and the auto-cruise cable (D) from the cylinder head cover.
(3) Remove the PCV(Positive Crankcase ventilation) hose (A) and breather hose (B).

(4) Remove the bolts and cylinder head cover.
Remove camshaft sprocket.
(1) Hold the hexagonal head wrench (A) portion of the camshaft with a wrench (B), and remove the bolt and camshaft sprocket (C).

Be careful not to damage the cylinder head and valve lifter with the wrench.


Install the camshaft sprocket and tighten the bolt to the specified torque.
(1) Temporarily install the camshaft sprocket bolt.
(2) Hold the hexagonal head wrench (A) portion of the camshaft with a wrench (B), and tighten the camshaft sprocket (C) bolt.
Tightening torque
Camshaft sprocket bolt :
98.1 - 117.7Nm (10.0 - 12.0kgf.M, 72.3 - 86.8lb-ft)

Install cylinder head cover.
(1) Install cylinder head cover (A) and the twelve bolts (B).

Tightening torque :
7.8 - 9.8Nm (0.8 - 1.0kgf.M, 5.8 - 7.2lb-ft)

(2) Install the PCV hose (A) and breather hose (B).
(3) Install the accelerator cable (C) and the auto-cruise cable (D) from the cylinder head cover.

(4) Install the spark plug cable.
Install the crankshaft sprocket (A).

Align the timing marks of the camshaft sprocket (A) and crankshaft sprocket (B) with the No. 1 piston placed at top dead center and its compression stroke.

Install the idler pulley (A) and tighten the bolt (B) to the specified torque.
Tightening torque
Idler pulley bolt :
42.2 - 53.9Nm (4.3 - 5.5kgf.M, 31.1 - 39.8lb-ft)

Install the timing belt tensioner loosely enough for the adjuster to rotate. Make sure that the stopper of base is leaning against the lowering sealing cap on the cylinder head.
Belt so as not give slack at each center of shaft. Do as following procedures when installing timing belt. Crankshaft sprocket (A) -> Idler pulley (B) -> Camshaft sprocket (C) -> timing belt tensioner (D).
(The tensioner can be installed after the timing belt.)

Check the alignment of the timing marks on each sprocket.
Remove the pin fixing the tensioner arm.
Using a hex wrench, turn the adjuster counterclockwise to make the indicator of the arm (A) located at the center of the base notch.

Do not rotate the adjuster clockwise.
It will result in auto tensioner's functional problem.

Tightening tensioner bolt with fixing the indicator not to move.
Tightening torque
Tensioner bolt :
22.6 - 28.4Nm (2.3 - 2.9kgf.M, 16.6 - 21.0lb-ft)

Turn the crankshaft two revolutions in the operating direction (clockwise) and check that the indicator is in the center of base.
If the indicator is not located at the center of base, slacken the bolt and repeat the above procedure.
Install the timing belt lower cover (A) with 5 bolts (B).
Tightening torque
Timing belt cover bolt :
7.8 - 9.8Nm (0.8 - 1.0kgf.M, 5.8 - 7.2lb-ft)

Install the flange and crankshaft pulley (A). Make sure that crankshaft sprocket pin fits the small hole in the pulley.
Tightening torque
Crankshaft pulley bolt :
156.9 - 166.7N.M (16.0 - 17.0kgf.M, 115.7 - 123.0lb-ft)

Install the timing belt upper cover (A) with 4bolts (B).
Tightening torque :
7.8 - 9.8N.M (0.8 - 1.0kgf.M, 5.8 - 7.2lb-ft)

Install the coolant pump pulley with 4bolts.
Install power steering belt.
Install air compressor bolt.
Install alternator belt.
Install the engine mount bracket
(1) Install the stay plate (A) with bolt (B).
Tightening torque
Stay plate bolt :
42.2 - 53.9Nm (4.3 - 5.5kgf.M 31.1 - 39.8lb-ft)

(2) Install engine mount bracket(A) with the three nuts (C, D) and bolt (B).
Tightening torque
17mm nut : 68.6 - 93.2Nm (7.0 - 9.5kgf.M 50.6 - 68.7lb-ft)
14mm nut : 49.0 - 63.7Nm (5.0 - 6.5kgf.M 36.2 - 47.0lb-ft)

Install RH side cover (A) with 2bolts (B).

Install RH front wheel.
Install engine cover (A) with the four bolts.
