My fault - I thought you had attached a video. I confused it with another similar post.

Regardless, any updates?

I have the belt cover off, but unable to detect any marks on the crank pulley.

THe marks are not easy to see, just a tick on the top of the gear tooth.

Again, just pull of the wheel, the one 10mm plastic nut, fold back the plastic access panel and remove the four bolts holding the harmonic balancer.

You will see the mark right away. After this if the gear teeth have markings (which mine did not) they will be now be evident.

I assure you time will be saved.

Look at the pictures in the PDF that is in the last post. They show the "marked" teeth for his car - possibly yours is the same.

I'd done all that save pulling the harmonic balancer, I'l;l try that,.

Timing marks are visible in this video, you are probably looking in the wrong place, they are not at the 12 o'clock position.
More like 10 oclock .
