Default Timing belt installation check from the top?

I've got a problem with a 2004 PT Cruiser automatic nonturbo.

Short Story: PT running rough. Mechanic might have installed timing belt wrong. Can someone tell me how to check the timing belt from the top to confirm this?

Long story:
I created another thread because I had a P0508 code related to IAC motor. I troubleshooted that and I'm pretty sure that there is nothing wrong with that system. The car is been runnig rough since I picked up from the mechanic who did the timing belt at 90k miles. So I'm starting to think that the rough idle is due to the timing belt being off a tooth or two. From the forums, I see that it's hard to get the timing right.

I want to check the timing belt installation. This post mentions disassembly from top just enough to check the timing belt installation. Can somebody describe to me how I would do this? I want to go back to my mechanic so he can make it right, but considering the fact that he'd have to redo the whole job, he might be reluctant so I want to be armed with this knowledge when I go back and talk to him.
