Just line up the marks on the front of the camshaft drive wheels and you're good-to-go.

No one that I know of opens the motor for this job.

Your manual should tell you to remove the inspection cap and rotate the engine prior to removing the belts.

I just lined up the marks before I started and switched 'em out.

By removing the belts before you line up the marks, you are in a potential precarious situation where you could bend valves.. do not force the cam gears or crank if there is any interference..

You don't need to remove the engine to get the cap off.



You probably should have done your homework before pulling the old belts off. Read the information that RB linked to, you may be able to line the timing marks back up by rotating the crankshaft and cams a bit at a time.
