Disconnecting the two latches, remove the upper timing cover

We set the piston of the 1st cylinder to the TDC position of the compression stroke for this:

Rotating the crankshaft clockwise by the bolt of the accessory drive pulley, we align the hole in the cylinder head with the hole on the camshaft pulley.

There are holes on the camshaft pulley and on the cylinder block that need to be aligned. Insert a suitable 8 mm stud into the hole of the pulley and cylinder block

Use the TORX E14 head to unscrew the hole plug for installing the TDC position lock. The plug is located to the left of the flywheel in the cylinder block at the level of the 1st cylinder

Screw the TDC position lock into the hole

In this position (TDC of the 1st cylinder), the keyway on the crankshaft must be at the top.

Holding it with a 6-key hex key, loosen the tension roller nut and remove the timing belt.

Install the timing belt in the reverse order of removal.

When installing the mark on the camshaft pulley (Fig. 10)

and the mark on the fuel injection pump pulley should line up with the marks on the belt.

We tighten the belt, the arrow "A" on the tensioner must coincide with the slot "B". Tighten the roller nut to 27 Nm.

We install the accessory drive pulley in the reverse order of removal.

Remove the retainers of the camshaft pulley and TDC

We turn the crankshaft by the bolt of the accessory drive pulley by six turns.

We check the coincidence of the labels.

If the marks do not match, reinstall the belt.

We install all the parts in the reverse order of their removal.
