Appently you have not done you search on the how to secction and the whole feoa site. But any ways here it goes. Again.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

CAUTION: DO NOT rotate camshafts with timing belt removed, or engine damage may result.

TIMING BELT

Removal (Escort & Tracer)
  1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Place cylinder No. 1 to TDC of compression stroke. Remove accessory drive belt and tensioner.
    Remove timing belt cover. Raise and support vehicle. Remove right hand splash shield. Remove crankshaft pulley. Align timing marks.


  2. Loosen timing belt tensioner. Using an 8-mm hex wrench, turn tensioner 1/4 turn counterclockwise. Insert 1/8 drill bit to lock tensioner in place. If reusing old belt, mark belt with arrow to indicate original direction of rotation. Remove timing belt.


Installation

  1. Ensure timing marks are still aligned. Install timing belt in a counterclockwise direction starting at the crankshaft. If reusing old belt, ensure it is installed in original direction of rotation.
    Keep belt span between crankshaft and camshaft tight while installing timing belt over camshaft.
  2. Remove drill bit and tighten tensioner bolt. Rotate crankshaft clockwise 2 revolutions. Recheck timing mark alignment. To complete
    installation, reverse removal procedure.

Just turn the camshaft with a socket wrench until the mark is in the right place. You aren't going to damage anything as your engine is a non-interference design.
