I assume that the engine is the 2.2L engine. When you dig into that rascal you need to pull a number of parts out of the way. The A/C the power steering, the alternator and the cruise I believe as well. The valve cover needs to come off and then you can start removing the time belt cover. There is the motor mount and that needs to be removed as well. Follow the repair manual, but take some good advice and buy a water pump, oil pump and the idler pulley is there as well. Replace these items now, not later. The one important item to note is the location of the pulleys. Mark the pulley and the engine to ensure an easy reinstall. If however you get lost, the timing and the life of your engine are at stake with getting the belt on properly. There is an arrow on the motor and the bottom pulley that must be lined up and the upper pulley will then need to be aligned with the two marks on the pulley being parallel with the top of the valve cover. Let us know if you get lost.
