Do i only need to replace the one that is broken, both on that side, or all 4 of them? And how do I ensure that i get the timing correct on a DOHC engine when replacing the timing chains?

The PDF formats above which you click in blue will show you removal and installation and timing procedure.

You original post did not include all the info until a moment ago so I did not know a chain was broken or I would of altered my post. You need to determine why it broke and then do replace this single chain and tensioners.
