    You need to remove the crank pulley and remove the front crank seal to gain access to the chain and tensioner... you would need a new crank bolt too... they are a complete arse to remove in the car...

    changing the chain and tensioner is a massive pain, it goes up round the crank so involves a lot of dismantling, more hassle than its worth unless obviously it has a problem.
