    Hello all,

    My ‘02 has just started the dreaded timing chain clicking which I’ve isolated to the rear chain. Can’t really complain considering this motor has 370k miles. I’ve done the entire timing chain repair once before on another Exp. by removing the engine. My question and hope is that someone has figured out a way to fix the rear chain rattle without removing the engine or trans. It’s a stretch, but I know there are some very cleaver folks here. Just hoping to get a little more time before pulling the engine in the spring.

    Nope, no magical way to get inside the bell housing without removing the engine.
