BMW M62tu Lower (primary) Chain Tensioner
This timing chain tensioner is mounted in the timing cover and can be removed without dis-assembly. This tensioner is likely the culprit if you have noisy timing chains.
Timing chains are like timing belts in that they keep the major components of the engine's combustion cycle in sync. Timing belt tensioners and timing chain tensioners perform the same job of keeping the chain/belt at the right tension. If the timing chain tensioner fails there is a high risk of chain failure, this it should be replaced immediately.
Timing chain guide replacement is the #1 repair that every BMW owner with the M62tu engine faces at some point. If you are replacing the timing chain guides it makes sense to also replace the timing chain tensioner while you are in there.
