Default Half way through timing belt replacement.

Got the bracket off and need to install new belt and tensioner. Belt broke so how do I get timing right?

Same way the manual says.

Make sure it is at 0* TDC, install new belt, rotate 360 and make sure the marks line up :-)

Also, if you go into the Tech & Performance section of this forum, there's a Sticky thread entitled "HOW TO". Inside that, there's about 30 links of useful information and I put about 5 that deal with the timing belt including Tips and Tricks.
