NTB07-042c - Timing chain

For this TSB, has anyone replaced only the tensioner? Is this a lot less work than doing the entire job? Can it be done easily with the engine in the vehicle? I know that top plate can be removed a lot easier than doing the entire job, but is that where the tensioner sits?

Wow man...Been looking through the FSM on this. Huuuge job just to get in. Even though the FSM will most of the time indicate you have to do more then you really do, it still looks daunting. It does not indicate the engine needs to be removed.

TSB does mention it's the secondary chain tensioners - at least they're up top.

EDIT...On second thought - check this..

You need to replace the secondary timing chains also, since they are the root cause of the problem.

The only shortcuts to this job is to use the ring gear stop tool as the TSB describes, this avoids having to remove the valve covers and intake manifold, saving a couple of hours of work.

It can be done with the engine in the vehicle, only the outer timing cover needs to be removed. Its very tight in space but possible.

I did this job on my 05, let me know if you need any help.

I need help, come here and do it for me! Lol I got a quote from a reputable shop that I've been to before for $800 including parts and all. I think that's pretty fair.

How much $ did you spend and how long did it took you to do it?

The parts alone are sold for like $400, something's not right about that.
