Hi, yes it needs to go through the top engine mount. You loosen both bolts so there is a gap about the width of the belt, then fully undo the first bolt. Slide the belt so it's between both bolts t

Thanks Gary -  just went out and did it (got the timing belt pulley off (OMG it was tight!) Hope I can get it bloody tight going back on! Anyway if anyone is reading this I have another question. The Alternator belt pulley has an unneeded belt bell on it (Probably for the MG power steering) would it be OK to machine it off? I will post a new post over this one as well.

Yes you can machine off the extra unused auxiliary drive, a popular little mod which gives more room to get your socket in.

I'm guessing that my 2002 K series will have the automatic tensioner?

Yes more than likely. Anyway order the Gates K series timing belt with tensioner and they will give you an auto Tensioner. Even if you had the manual tensioner go with an auto one when you replace it. I did mine as you can see back in December. the job wasn't super easy but I'm just an average home mechanic and did it no problem. Any other questions feel free to ask. The other guys or I will be happy to answer for you.
