Okay I realised that for the cam install (on my car without the acces hatch for the tensioner) these are the components that needs to be removed:
- oil pan
- one of the engine mounts
- belts and pulleys
- cam cover
- then finally the timing chain cover
It’s a lot of work. And as such it’s costly to get a workshop to do it.
I have to check out going across the border to Malaysia to get it done where labour is much cheaper.
For those with the access hatch, you only need to remove the cam cover and access hatch! How much easier is that’?!
