Old Problem New to Me 4.0 SOHC Timing Chain Tensioner Guide Cassette Replacement

Hello Everyone,
I am new to the forum and new to the wonderful world of the Ford Explorer..I have a 2000 XLT w/ 4.0 v6 SOHC...the Tensioner Guide Cassette on the Timing Chain from the jackshaft to the camshaft is broken..right front of engine (looking at it)...what do I need to do to replace it?? can I do this by removing the valve cover?? I know this is an age old problem and Im sure this has been answered a million times but ive searched and searched and cant find it...I would really appreciate any help given...i can do the work but any guidence would be so helpful...i dont want to tear down anymore than I have to...
Thank you so much for your help!!!

I refer you to bring this to the shop.
Even you can do it, you just don't have the right tool and calibration tool to adjust it.

Best regard,

Tony
