there are three guides
one on either side of the chain and a small one below the crank sprocket...to replace it you have to pull the timing cover off...may as well check your chain while you are there

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

They are worth replacing... I've replaced the side and bottom one, and the car motor is sooo sooo quiet now. Can barely tell it's on anymore when sitting at the lights :D. The new engine mounts helped out with that too.

Snapping that guide on the right usualy means the engine will have to come out to fix it.moral, undo the 10mm bolt at the top of the guide.

Mine is snapped to, the long one on the tensioner side :( When i ut the ef head on i just left it so now it has the bottom peice still there ans the bolt in the head with nothing on it. It makes a rattle like a real sick lifter when you rev it under no load. I probably should fix it but im building another engine so I dont really care. Just hope it lasts for 6 months or so
