      2004 1.6l Head removal

      moving my posts here on the head removal.

      so far I am stuck on removing the upper alternator bolt to get tension off the accessory belt to remove it and I cannot remove the clips for the injectors. Everything up to the point has been removed.

      *edit got the injector plugs removed and the accessory belt removed. Still need to remove the one bolt from the alternator. Considering removing the mount from the head itself.*

      Honestly, it can be removed in maybe an hour. I did it throughout the day. It was a bit hot outside, plus if I got hung up on a step I went to my laptop and looked over the FSM.An iPad in a ziplock bag would have been awesome. I just followed the factory service manual and unplugged, unbolted, and moved things. Then a friend came over after work and we removed the head and stripped it of the intake and the other stuff so the machine shop could work on it.


      I'm hoping that when I put it all back together soon it runs....

      Got the head back and put the intake back on and all of the other bits. No extra bolts, wooo that's a good sign.

      Now waiting on a friend to come over so we can put it back on and properly torque it down then do the timing belt job.

      I'm guessing that I will have to get cyl 1 to TDC then line up the cams (notches pointing at each other) and put the belt on. Then tension until the tensioner mark is at point (C)... rotate engine twice then relieve tension to point (B).... then for safeys sake rotate the engine by hand and make sure nothing is binding.

      then reconnect everything and turn the key?

      sort of like that. dont forget oil, coolant, etc.. and put everything a tdc before putting the head on, or the valves might whack the cylinders..

      yeah, fluids are kind of important.

      I'm a bit afraid of putting the head back on without someone that has done something like this before.

      Cyl 1 is at TDC and I have the cams sprockets off the head at the moment(followed the instructions) so I think cyl 1 is where it should be(no way of telling unless I have the sprockets back on and line up the marks)

      with out the cams, the head is not in time, as all the valves are closed. but if that is the procedure your following, just make sure when you bolt the cams in they will not need turned to tdc.. get them as close as possible.
