Q: Timing belt on 2004 Hyundai Sonata

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Timing belt snapped in half and is caught between the timing belt wheels. Can I take one of the wheels off to remove the broken timing belt?

Probably , but while you're there , remove the head and let a machine shop replace the bent valves. It's listed as an 'interference' engine , which means when the belt breaks , valves hit the pistons and bend or otherwise cause damage. Sorry , but if my info is correct , a good used engine might be the better option.
