Hello

I only show a GS 300 not a 350. For the GS 300

Timing marks on camshaft sprockets must align with timing marks on No. 4 timing belt cover. See Fig. 12 . If conditions are not as described, rotate crankshaft clockwise one complete revolution clockwise

Hello

Also, it looks like you may have a recall on your vehicle. The dealer may fix this for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on this to see if it applies to you.
