You can pay between $500 to $800 to have it done.
I would have a dealer do it because they have the knowledge and equipment needed to do it right.

Good luck.
It's not rocket science. Most reputable shops can do a timing belt. We do at least one a month. Replacements are starting to slow down because many car manufacturers are going back to timing chains which should never have to be changed.
