Changing a timing belt on a Honda Civic 2004-2006 CF is a very tediuos job and requires a great skill as chances of ruining the timings are great. The technician must be fully prepared and have following already in hand before starting.
Why Genuine timing belt ?
We always recommend a genuine Timing belt as this engine has interfering valve angles and if you snap the belt the engine will be permanently damaged.

High skill required
After removing wheel, remove crank pulley bolt, it can be tricky and involves a lot of experience, make sure not to use hammer as that can cause permanent damage.
Removing power steering reservoir
We used a feeler guage to take measurements and locate all the alignment signs before opening the belt to make sure about its fitment and clean any hidden marks
Cam pulley must be at UP (sign display) and slots on cam pulley must align the top of head.
The crank Pulley mark and arrow on block is very difficult to locate, this is where the technicians make an error and cause the engines to permanently loose power after re-installing a timing belt, only highly skilled technicians are able to do it perfectly.
This model of Civic has a complex design on a timing bearing, to make the belt last longer this bearing takes the tension out from the belt when it is idling but this also involves a trick to install and tighten the belt perfectly, once the belt is aligned a lock is removed which is in the highlighted part and it automatically tightens the belt. So be very careful aligning the teeth of the belt from top to bottom.
