Have had a nasty rattle from front of my 1994 European E36 M3 (S50 B30 engine) - My mechanic has looked at it an reckons that one of the timing chain guides has broken or worked itself loose (lower right side when looked at from front)
To get at the lower part of the timing chain and guides I need to remove the lower timing chain cover. I have looked at the BMW TIS CD and this says that it is necessary to remove the cylinder head first !! - major pain !!
My question - Does anyone know if the Lower Timing chain cover can be removed without first removing the head ? It seems a crazy amount of work to have to do ! Alternately is there some other way of removing the timing chain guide ?
Any hints, comments etc. greatly appreciated !
