Anybody changed their own 2.4 cambelt?

My cam belt is coming up for renewal in Autumn, and I am considering doing it myself.

I have changed several belts over the years including 3 on Peugeot diesels.

The reason for asking was just to clarify the where the alignment marks are and such like. I know that it is good practice to change the water pump as well as the aux belt.

There doesn't seem to be any good work shop manuals for the 159 and so good info is hard to come by.

You need both the crank and cam timing tools, as you say there are no real timing marks. Yes change the water pump and all the tensioners and idler bearings.
