Hello.

I have a 2004 Santa Fe V6 2.7 litter .
After taking everything apart to replace timing belt, having made sure to line all marks I proceeded to remove the timing belt but after removing the timing belt I noticed that the top left sprocket had moved backwards, from about 1pm to about 10am.
When I try to place the mark on its place the sprocket SPRINGS either back or forward with tension.
Can I just continue with installing the new belt and when I get to the point of placing the belt on the left sprocket, can I just use an wrench to hold it in place until I put the belt in place?
PLEASE HELP

I have had to do something similar. Just don't force it, some guys use plastic clips or zip ties to temporarily hold the belt in position. Double check that belt stays lined up after turning a few rotations.
