Default 01 CR-V timing belt replacement write up?

Did a search, and couldnt find anything really showing what needs to be done to change the timing belt. My wife just bought this car, an 01 CR-V w/136K miles. I am not near the vehicle, but when I go home in a few months, I am going to do some maintenance, and this is one item.
Any write ups with pics if possible would be great.
Thanks

I would seriously suggest going to Helminc.com or eBay and getting a Helms manual for the car. I will be a million times better than something on the internet.

Helms are pretty good, and I Use it for a couple other vehicles.
But right now I am looking to see what others have to offer that a helms wont, experience with actual cars and suggestions to aleviate issues that come up. Here is a thread sent to me.

do you have any service history? was it done at 80-100k? if so then you should be good for a year or 2 depending on the driving habits.

My wife is going to Honda to run the VIN to see if they have a history on it. My wife is the second owner as the original owners were retired folks, and yes she met them. But, the owners manual wasnt in the car, and the CARFAX was clean.
The car is in very good shape and very clean. We are hoping, that the car was maintained correctly.
Once I get ahold of it, it will get regular things done to it.

i couldnt email it cause its too big a file. here is the site to download it. go to the site and scroll down to the second set of links and download the 3rd one that is 37mb. it is a pdf of the acctual manual that the service tech uses in the dealership. ive personally used this manual to do my tb on my crv and i hope you have a laptop or macbook cause you will be refering to it over and over again. im lucky enough to have a buddy at my local dealership that let me borrow the manual and told me to put it on his toolbox on monday morning so i made sure i was there when the doors oped to return it. good luck! and makesure you follow ever step and re-read ever step cause if you mess up you could bend valves and that will turn into a huge bill. it took me two tries cause the first time i was off by a tooth and the car ran really rough. it took me 8 hours the first time and 2.5 hrs the second time since i knew what i was doing.

Wow, great links. Thanks for the help. Now I need to wait for dial up at my Hotel to get it loaded.
Again, thanks
