In this video we change my timing belt and water pump in my 2002 Toyota Tacoma. This engine is the 5vz-fe 3.4L V6. Note check your cam seals and other seals that may need to be changed. Also if you know how to loosen the tensioner you can change them if they are bad.
SST can be made or bought. Here is the thread on the topic:
Also snap-on tensioner tool can snap your lower pulley timing belt tensioner. So take the time to remove your ac pump and the other bracket.
ALSO if you have red Toyota coolant continue to use RED Toyota coolant. You can only go back to red coolant if you flush the radiator.

Timing Belt - the Forgotten Belt (by Dayco)
Timing Belt - the Forgotten Belt. This video stresses the importance of
checking and following the manufacturers recommended replacement interval
for the timing belt. Along with recommendations to replace the "hardware"
associated with the Timing Belt (Tensioner, Water Pump, and Idler Pulleys)
at the same time the Timing Belt is being replaced. To find out more

Timing Belt / Waterpump Replacement: Toyota & Lexus V6
Step by step DIY Video on how to replace the timing belt, waterpump,
camshaft and crankshaft seals, idler pulleys and tensioner on a Toyota or
Lexus with a V6 engine.
Procedure is the same for all 1994-2006 1MZ-FE (3.0L) and 3MZ-FE (3.3L)
engines, with the newer engines differing only in the timing belt tensioner
Procedure is straight forward starting with the removal of the dog bone
mount, engine support bracket, alternator and power steering belts, crank
pulley (harmonic balancer) and timing belt covers.
Once access to the timing belt is achieved, the tensioner is released so
the belt can be removed. The camshafts should be removed to get to the
waterpump, otherwise two studs running through the waterpump have to be
Special tools required are an impact wrench and air ratchet (not
mandatory), a seal puller, a pulley puller, torque wrench, and a crankshaft
and camshaft holding tool.
This job should take 4 hours for a DIY'er with moderate mechanical
aptitude. The Aisin timing belt kit with waterpump from RockAuto was used.
After the removal of the cam and crank bolts, the hardest part of this job
was dealing with the rear camshaft seal and aligning it with the marks on
the timing belt. Access is tight near the fender wall and removing the
power steering fluid line and reservoir is recommended.

How to Remove Stubborn Toyota 20R - 22R - 22RE Crankshaft Pulley Bolt 1979 - 1995
A long (but detailed) video on the tips and tricks I've learned over the
years on how to remove stubborn crankshaft pulley bolts on Toyota 22R
series engines. (22R 22RE 22RET)
By far, the best way would be to have the SST (shop specific tool) that
Toyota recommends, but not many folks (me included) has one of those in
their garage. This is a video of some of the tips and tricks that I've
learned over the years on getting this sometimes EXTREMELY stubborn bolt to
The most common reason that you need to be able to get this bolt out is so
that you can access the front main seal on the front end of the crankshaft.
Most older Toyotas develope an oil leak through the seal. Oil works past
the worn-out seal and then gets flung around the front of the engine and
engine bay by the crankshaft pulleys. It's really a pretty easy fix for a
very messy problem...if you can get the crankshaft pulley bolt off in order
to access the seal.
AC Clutch Repair and Noise Diagnosis -EricTheCarGuy
This one starts out as a noise diagnosis that ends up working in an AC
clutch repair on a 1998 Acura 3.2 TL. In addition to the AC compressor
clutch, we also talk about repairing the AC belt idler pulley and other
possible noises during AC operation. So if you ever need to replace an AC
compressor clutch or have a noise coming from the idler pulley on your AC
system, this video is for you. Here's some useful links.

Peugeot 406 Timing Belt Change
Changing a timing belt on a peugeot 406 2.0 HDi 110 DW10ATED
The car has around 122,000 miles and apparently it had a new belt put on at
79,000 miles but there was no receipts so to be sure i changed it.
It is quite an involved job, a lot of things to do and it needs to be done
right otherwise it can wreck the cars engine.
I would recommend reading the Haynes Manual and this, and reading them a
number of times to fully understand what is involved:
The tensioning procedure i did not show completely in the video as its hard
to show on camera and its best if you read the guide to see how its done.
I also replaced the water pump as its good to do when your in there, the
crankshaft oil seal was leaking hence all the oil/sludge in the area,
engine degreaser was used liberally to clean up the area and timing belt
covers before putting the new belt on.

I hope this video helps to show what is involved with a timing belt change
on a 2.0 HDi DW10ATED engine, but i strongly recommend that you read the
manual and the other guides.
I only intend for this video to help and condense the timing belt
replacement procedure, any suggestions on how to do things differently are
