Transmission has to be removed for any work carried out on timing chain, but the tensioner has been the problem before for me and it can be changed easly. If tensioner is removed for inspection make sure that if it is ok that you empty oil from tensioner by inserting 0.8mm wire through drill hole then compress plunger. If there isn't a drill hole just insert as is.
