I removed the camshaft sprocket by wedging a large screwdriver through the
one of the sprocket "windows" to rest on the engine block I believe. The cam
gear bolt can then be removed with a socket wrench. The manual says to wedge
a screw driver blade into the one of the gear bolt teeth but I couldn't get
this method to work. Screwdriver kept slipping off. Might work with two
people though. One to hold the screwdriver and the other to turn the cam
bolt ....

I ripped the belt too!  :)
