1996 Hyundai Lantra Water pump and timing belt


Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Hyundai Lantra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 230000 miles

I need to change a worn water pump and might as well change the timing belt as well since I've heard it has to be taken off to change the water pump. I need to know what is involved with the job and if I should replace anything else while I'm at it, ie. Crank seal and what's involved in that as well and also what torque setting will I need to know.

Do you
have the same problem?

Remove all drive belts and drive pulleys from crankshaft and water pump. Remove generator bolt, if necessary. Remove crankshaft pulley and water pump pulley.
Remove timing belt covers and gaskets, noting bolt lengths and locations. DO NOT rotate engine counterclockwise, as viewed from timing belt side of engine. Remove timing belt tensioner pulley.
Rotate engine clockwise to align all timing marks so No. 1 cylinder is at TDC of compression stroke. . If reusing belt, place mark on timing belt to indicate direction of belt rotation. Remove timing belt.
