Your vehicle is equipped with a timing chain, not a belt. You must first remove the timing chain cover to see the timing chain itself..Procedures are below. Please not that these procedures are for the vehicle's with 3 being the eighth digit of the VIN. If your eighth digit of VIN is different, please let me know.

(VIN 3)
REMOVAL:
Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
If not already done, disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the timing chain front cover.
Turn the crankshaft so the timing marks are aligned.

Remove the crankshaft oil slinger, as required.
Remove the camshaft sprocket bolts.
Remove the camshaft sensor magnet assembly.
Use 2 prybars to alternately pry the camshaft and crankshaft sprocket free, along with the chain.

INSTALLATION:
Make sure the crankshaft is positioned so the No. 1 piston is at TDC.
Rotate the camshaft with the sprocket temporarily installed, so the timing mark is straight down.
Assemble the timing chain on the sprockets with the timing marks aligned. Install the timing chain and sprocket.
Install the cam sensor magnet assembly.
Install the oil slinger with the large part of the cone toward the front of the engine, as required.
Install the camshaft sprocket bolt, thrust button and spring.
Install the timing chain damper and engine front cover.
Connect the negative battery cable.
