The procedure guide I am reviewing (Shop Key) makes no mention of removng the the Chain tensioners and or guides. It does mention locking the secondary chains to the idler sprocket. It makes mention of a special tool that is wedged into the timing chain prior to removing the cam gear.
If the guides and tensioners are to be removed please provide additional detail.
I am able to see where the chain guide mounts on the upper end, but I can not determine how or where to remove the tensioner. I have yet to remove the front cover, will removing the cover expose the chain tensioners?
