Need help removing cylinder head

I am trying to remove the head from my 2001 325 2.5 and i'm getting stuck with the cam and timing chain assembly. I have not removed the head bolts, exhaust and intake manifolds yet.

I do not have experience with OHC motors so i'm a bit confused on how to remove this set up. Is there a cover to remove to get to the main chain or do i remove the cam shafts and chains from the top before removing the head? I know that i should be buying a service manual for the car and i'll probably order one tomorrow.

Any guidance will be appreciated.

Thanks

i think the timing chain has a kingpin link you pop off in order to remove the chain entirely, but don't hold me to that. I am an e30 guy, not an e46guy.

R.I.P fast 6


Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.
