Unhappy 1997 mgf 1.8 vvc cam belt snapped

Is the valve clearance enough to save the engine? Can it be fixed without removing engine?

Unfortunately the K-series is an interference engine. Hopefully all the damage is to just the cylinder head: bent valve(s) and possibly valve guide(s).

Yes it can be done with the engine in place.
