Default 2005 PT timing belt change

Sorry, yet another post regarding timing belt changes. I have finally figured out that if I jack the engine high enough I can get the engine mount out of the engine compartment. The question I have is are there any differences between the '03 and the '05 as far as setting up the tensioner goes, or anything else for that matter? The Chiltons manual I purchased that is supposed to be for an 01-09 talks about the 01-03 models, but is silent on anything newer. I hate Chiltons manuals, but I figured anything would be better than nothing...not. Unbelieveable how they managed to stuff 10 pounds of poo into a 5 pound container...

So the answer is yes, the 2005 is the same as a 2003 - got it back together today. Also, I used a Motion Pro clutch tool for motorcycles to hold the camshaft gears, it worked great. Here is an example of the tool: Amazon.com: Motion Pro Clutch Holding Tool - --/--: Automotive

Wow, sucks to be him. I disconnected the MAP sensor (as well as many others) to move the intake manifold out of the way to get to the heater hoses to change them. I didn't get the connector seated good on the first try; went to go for a test drive and has a check engine light and a car that idled fine but would try to die under any sort of load. Anyway, 30 seconds with a scan tool, finished plugging the MAP sensor in, and off I went. Guess its better to be lucky than good...
