2002 Sebring: with a 3.0L..removing the heads..timing belt

Resolved Question:

I own a 2002 Sebring Coupe with a 3.0L DOHC. I am removing the heads and my Haynes book says to remove timing belt. It shows how to hold the vib damper to remeove it but mine does not have a slot in it to jam a prybar or srewdriver to hold it. Is there a tool to hold it in place to remove it or do I have to make something, or is it possible to remove the heads without completely removing the timing belt.

AMEDEE :

Did you still need help?

AMEDEE :

The timing belt needs to be removed completley when pulling the heads off. There is no way around it.

AMEDEE :

They do make specail tools.... but they are used to align the timing marks back up during installation.
