there is a special tool to hold gears in correct place on some of these models, but you can hold one cam at a time with a spanner then feed belt on exhaust cam then inlet cam gear
get someone to hold gears in place while you feed belt on.
the inlet cam is more prone to turn off mark more than exhaust.
if you have tensioner that needs retaining pin in when installing
you fit belt while aligning timming marks
fit tensioner as last spot to feed belt on with retaining pin in adjuster
get correct tension on belt by turning water pump so that you can flex (turn) belt 90 degrees only just while using finger and thumb
tighten water pump check flex
check all timing marks are correct
remove retaining pin from auto tensioner
turn motor over a couple of turns by hand observing tensioner arrow should hover around V mark and that all timing marks align up again(after one complete turn)

SOURCE: Timming belt replacement
there are 2 engines, which one? 2.5 or 2.3? i have never done one on a 2.5, so this is for a 2.3. jack up the car, pull the right front wheel. pull the splash shield. now, i like lots of room, so i drain the radiator, and pull off the upper hose. support the motor with a jack that you can move up and down, and pull the motor mount. on a 2.3, i can guarantee you the mount will be bad. now, this is important. you MUST loosen the bolts on the water pump pulley, and, most important of all, the nut on the power steering pulley. this must be done BEFORE you pull the drive belt, or you will never get the p/s pulley nut loose. this pulley has to come off to get the covers off. there's a lot more, but that will get you started. however, the millenia belt is kevlar, and they wear like iron. if the belt breaks, nothing will hit, but it will leave you stranded. i would just let it go till it breaks.
