Now comes time to remove the chain guides. It's a very simple, just unbolt and reinstall. No special tricks upon installation other that the top bolt on the driver's side (LHD) rail has weird sleeve. Instructions for that one are on page 117-4 of the Bentley manual. I also suggest a coating of grease on the sliding surface for the initial engine start up.

The engine minus the chain and guides.




Here's what happened to the lower guide upon removal. The rotation force of just removing the little bolt was enough to snap it.



Wear on the old guides vs. the new ones.
