Hyundai Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello I will help you with your question,
When you rotate counter clickwise you will unload the tension from the chain. You should not damage anything but the sound you heard might have been the camshaft advance moving through its travel.
Have you tried to turn it clockwise a couple of times?
That is the only reply I have made, I don't know what you see is different?
I do think you are good, if you have the #1 cylinder (belt end of engine) on TDC the cam marks are together and you have the guides and tensioner installed with the pin out of the tensioner you will be in time and no damage should occur.
You hsould be good with no damage.
Please let me know if you have further questions
No problems then, you should be fine. They don't want you to turn it counterclockwise as it unloads the tensioner and puts the slack in the chain on the other side but if you turn it clockwise before you remove anything it will bring the slack back to the tensioner side and it should be fine.
