    after reading the manuals do i bring camshaft timing so that the timing marks are horizontal? how do i remove the cam pulley without the camshaft losing its timing position?
    and how do i refit the new pulley in the same position the old one came off?

    I think he just means the cam pinion locking tool (85 quid Renault only), which is shown in the second picture above. Plus the cam timing tool shown in the first picture.

    I've put new cams in mine. It is certainly doable for the competent home mechanic, I'm not a mechanic by trade just been playing with cars for as long as I've been driving them.

    Yep, the cam locking tool. Both the tools shown in the pics plus the pin to lock the crank.

    I did have the part numbers, I might be able to find them. IIRC there is an updated to 1809 or something to replace the 1509-01. I'll have a look at the numbers on mine.

    What does the dephaser pulley actually do?

    the dephaser pulley moves on the end of the camshaft to adjust the cam timing slightly to aid low down driving (under 1500rpm or so)

    it moves when the solenoid on the top of the rocker cover activates and puts oil into the pulley

    a.k.a - vvt
