E-36 325i Hyd Chain Tensioner Leaks

My Hydraulic Chain Tensioner just above the ac compressor. I was able to re-torqued it and it is not currently leaking. I imagine it will start up again. It was loose. I can't find anything on how to remove or reinstall it. Is there a seal?
Is the tensioner being loose an indicator of future problem?

Thanks in advance. Bobby

Looks good to go. No funny noises our changes in engine performance after tightening the tensioner.
