Hey Guys,

I have a 02 protege with 103000 miles on it. I'm trying to get motivated to do the timing belt myself. I bought a new kit from Napa, belt and idler and tensioner. New belts, vavle cover gasket, and I'm thinking of doing the waterpump since I will be there anyway.
Here is my question. I can not find a chilton or haynes manual on this car, I have some info from mitchell on demand from a napa website, Is there anywhere to get a good information on this timing belt change?

Here is a place to download the workshop manual. I bought one from the dealership when I bought my car for ~ $110. It is about 1000 pages, so the it seems that they charged the cost of printing. There is a source for downloading it from the net, but I can't promise it to be free of virus's.

The service manuals provide the best possible information.
