    This is a real complex job and is best left to a professional repair shop. There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online
    and get an online repair manual subscription.

    Those has to be aligned BEFORE you remove the timing belt.
    Actually there is a special tool which has to be used to interlock the cams.
    Now you are risking a serious engine damage.
