    I'm assuming you mean the timing belt.

    Install the timing belt.
    Align the timing mark on the crankshaft gear with the notch on the bottom of the rear timing belt cover.

    Align the timing marks on the camshaft gears, using the intake gear mark for the intake gear and the exhaust gear mark for the exhaust gear.
    Turn the hex-key tab in a clockwise direction to tension the belt. Turn until the pointer aligns with the notch.
    Install the automatic tensioner bolt. Tighten: Tighten the automatic tensioner bolt to 25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.) .
    Rotate the crankshaft two full turns clockwise using the crankshaft pulley bolt.
    Recheck the automatic tensioner pointer.
    Install the front timing belt cover.
    Install the front timing belt cover bolts. Tighten: Tighten the front timing belt cover bolts to 6 Nm (53 inch lbs.) .
