It would be a lot easier if you have access to a lift.....but first disconnect the battery cables (if you want to) thes release the tension on all the belts then, Remove the three 15mm bolts from the lower pulley(balancer), the remove the 18mm bolt from the center of the lower pulley, then remove the pulley, then install balancer puller (special tool) to remove pulley hub, then romove 10mm bolts from the front cover(i believe there are 8 or 10 of them, there are also 2 13mm bolts that comes from the bottom through the oil pan and the front of the timing cover which also needs to be removed) then remove cover (a little prying mat be necessary)....Rotate the crankshaft and the camshaft to where the dots on each are at the closest piont about 10 and 4 o'clock....Remove the 18mm bolt that goes through the camshaft to remove the chain and gears.... then remove the tensiones which is held with a 10mm bolt and a 40 torx bit.... Clean sealer or gasket material from mating surfaces reverse the order and install making sure the cam and crack dots are aligned and the pin is removed from the new tensioner.......... it's a lot of work requiring a few special tools,, if THERE IS ANY DOUBT contact your local service tech........HOPE THAT HELPSHow do you change the timing chain on a 92 chevy cavalier?
