Be careful not to damage the contact surfaces of cylinder block, cylinder head and timing chain cover.
Installation
1.
Install the timing chain cover.
(1)
Using a gasket scraper, remove all the old packing material from the gasket surfaces.
(2)
The sealant locations on the chain cover and the counter parts (cam carrier, cylinder head, cylinder block, and ladder frame) must be free of harmful foreign materials, oil, dust and moisture. Spraying cleaner on the surface and wiping with a clean duster.
(3)
Before assembling the timing chain cover, liquid sealant should be applied on the gap between cam carrier, cylinder head and cylinder block.
Width : Ø 3.0 - 5.0 mm (0.1181 - 0.1969 in.)
Specification : MS 721-40 AA or AAO

(4)
After applying liquid sealant on the timing chain cover, assemble the cover within 5 minutes after sealant was applied. Continuous bead of sealant should be applied to prevent any path from oil leakage.
Bead width
Whole section: Ø 2.5 - 3.5 mm (0.10 - 0.14 in.)
Specification : MS 721-40 AA or AAO

(5)
Install the timing chain cover. The dowel pins on the cylinder block and holes on the timing chain cover should be used as a reference in order to assemble the timing chain cover in exact position.
Tightening torque
Bolts (A) : 39.2 - 44.1 N.m (4.0 - 4.5 kgf.m, 28.9 - 32.5 lb-ft)
Bolts (B,C) : 9.8 - 11.8 N.m (1.0 - 1.2 kgf.m, 7.2 - 8.7 lb-ft)
Bolts (D) : 18.6 - 23.5 N.m (1.9 - 2.4 kgf.m, 13.7 - 17.4 lb-ft)

  
The engine running or pressure test should not be performed within 30 minutes after the timing chain cover was assembled.
2.
Replace the front oil seal if necessary.
(Refer to Timing System - “Front Oil Seal”)
3.
Install the other parts in the reverse order of removal.

Timing Chain. Repair procedures

Removal
  
Be careful not to damage the parts located under the vehicle (floor under cover, fuel filter, fuel tank and canister) when raising the vehicle using the lift.
(Refer to General Information - "Lift and Support Points")

(Refer to Cylinder Head Assembly - "Cylinder Head Cover")
2.
Set No.1 cylinder to top dead center (TDC) on compression stroke.
(1)
Turn the crankshaft pulley and align its groove with the timing mark of the timing chain cover.

(2)
Check that the TDC marks of the intake and exhaust CVVT sprockets are in straight line on the cylinder head surface as shown in the illustration. If not, turn the crankshaft by one revolution (360°) more.

3.
Remove the timing chain cover.
(Refer to Timing System - "Timing Chain Cover")

Clean battery posts and cable terminals and assemble.
Inspect for fuel leakage.
After assemble the fuel line, turn on the ignition switch (do not operate the starter) so that the fuel pump runs for approximately two seconds and fuelline pressurizes.
Repeat this operation two or three times, then check for fuel leakage at any point in the fuel line.
Refill radiator and reservoir tank with engine coolant.
Bleed air from the cooling system.
