Question : I want to replace the timing belt of my Honda Civic myself. I have the tools and the parts needed. What's the procedure? I want to know what the marks are and in what position they have to be in.

Answer : Do not move anything; just loosen the old belt and slip on the new timing belt. Make sure you put in the replacement belt in the same way as the old belt was removed, i.e. wherever there was no slack in the old belt, the same when you put in the new belt.

Be careful not to move any of the pulleys. Ideally you need to know and line up the timing marks when replacing the belt but if you are careful, you can do it as mentioned above.
