05 Ralliart snapped timing belt

I just bought a 2005 Ralliart as a result of my 2002 Lancer ES being totaled. The timing belt broke a couple weeks ago (the reason I only paid $500) and itís the first work needed to get back running. I work at a car shop but Iíve never done timing belts before. Iíve watched some YouTube videos and done research but I want to see if I can get more personal input from someone with mitsu experience. Any assistance on tools, procedure or anything useful is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance 😁

That's an interference engine, if your timing belt snapped your valves are probably bent. You're gonna want to pull the head to inspect it.

Be sure to check the pistons for damage from valve contact as well. It'd be wise to get ahold of the factory workshop manual for your car as it'll give you all the steps and specs you need for the job.

This is the manual I used to do my timing belt replacement (same year as yours)… Just follow the instructions in the first post and you'll have a pdf copy..

Do I have to put the car on a lift or can it be done on the ground?

Id recommend putting the front end on jack stands and taking the front right tire off so you can have easy access to the serp system and the lower timing cover/system.. However it can still can be done without being jacked up but its tight and a PITA...
