Default how to put side timing belt cover back on

I just completed the timing replacement along with the idler and tensioner..The tensioner had come apart.. Thanks to all the experts on the forum I was able to do this, I never changed a timing belt . Engine runs great . I cannot seem to get the timing belt cover ( the one on the side) back in place.. ( 2001 s80 2.9 ). It is so hard to see anything at the bottom of the cover. any pictures or direction would be great..Thanks so much...Bill

You need to drop it into a couple of retaining clips at the bottom. Then there is one bolt to keep it in place at the top. This would have been easiest with all resevoirs and accesories out of the way. I can text you a picture from my shop manual. I'm surprised you did this job without one!

I know this was to be the simplest part of the project..But when I side the cover down I am not sure if the 2 clips found home . I do not think they did. The cover will not clip into the area where the metal clips are and it appears not to line up well,, Any pictures when be great..Thanks Bill
