    If you are looking to replace it yourself, I wouldn't. There is specialiezed equipment to claibrate the chain when replaced. I suggest you check with a MB technician first.

    If your timing chain has not slipped damaging the 4 exhaust valves it is relatively easy to do, please e mail me on jagclassic2002@yahoo.ca and I can guide you through it, I have done several including complete rebuilds
