Timing Cover Removal

Recommended Posts

Another quick one for you, hopefully. I'm removing my lower timing cover for the first time, to have it repaired, and I've removed everything in the attached diagram (except 5) plus the upper timing cover and the front oil pan bolts, but it won't move. It's not just the gasket holding it on, wiggling and tapping won't move it and it feels like it's attached near the bottom.

 

Will any timing parts come off with the cover? It sure feels like I'm pulling on internal parts. Does the oil pan need to be removed?

Oh, you need to remove your timing chain tentioner  it's under the hex plug shown in your last picture. take the hex cover out and pull out the spring and piston, you may have to push the cover toward the engine to release side loading on the piston

That worked! Just not as planned. Since that was the last thing holding the cover on it all just fell off when I applied torque to the hex. I take it that when I put this back together I'll just remove the tensioner, reinstall the cover, then reinstall the tensioner.

 

Thanks for the guidance!
