    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’?!

    I think if you remove that bolt in the middle of the photo of your timing chain cover, a hole will be uncovered which will allow you to insert a thin rod to hold the cam chain tensioner retracted. The bolt is referred to as the service hole bolt in the service manual. There is a procedure to follow to retract the tensioner and lock it retracted in the manual. You don't have to remove all the things you referred to your last post. This is on pages 11A-23 through 11A-25 in the service manual. You're welcome.

    Man, there's a lot of cool stuff in that manual!
    Simplify and add lightness.
