2003 Sport Track Timing Chain Question

I have a 2003 ford sport trac, the front drivers side timing chair cassette/tensioner is damaged, and the chain is making noise. does the engine need to be pulled for that cassette/tensioner ?

also if anyone has a step by step or a guide on doing this repair Id really appreciate it.


Thanks in advance!

left timing chain cassette

I believe all of the SOHC V6 long blocks are identical so it should not be necessary to pull the engine to replace the left cassette. The following post on my 2000 Sport may be helpful: SOHC V6 Timing Chain Inspection & Repair
