Apparently, the correct procedure for changing the timing chain is to drop the engine and change the guides and sprockets.

However, my independent mechanic has suggested that he can just change the chain, and inspect the sprockets and guides once the rocker cover is off, in order to avoid extra labour cost.

He says he has done many of these on Mercedes E220's

Has anyone had experience with this? Any advice?
