    It was time to replace my timing belt on a 2009 Forester. Somehow the camshafts got out of timing when installing the belt. The belt must have slipped when installing. Antway the crankshaft and the camshafts are not properly aligned to install the belt. How does one realign the camshafts to the crankshaft?
    Also my 2009 does not have the guide to keep the belt on the crankshaft cog. This is the piece that keeps the belt from jumping on the crankshaft. Did the 2009 have this. The block is drilled and tapped for the piece.
