If it has not broken or jumped timing you simply remove the valve cover and timing chain tennsioner. Then cut a link out of the old chain on top of the cam gear, then you attach the new chain with the supplied master link and slowly rotate the engine until the old chain has run out and the new chain is in it's place. It's best to have a helper to rotate so you can hold the chain against the cam gear. Once this is done recheck the can timing and do not let the chain slip or you will have to pull the injection pump and retime it. Even if you do it's easier than removing the front cover! Good luck!

How to set timing on a 1985 Mercedes 300d

If the timing chain broke, the timing of the injection pump is likely off also. In order to time that correctly, you need to remove the pump. If you want to tackle that I'll send you more information about setting the basic timing of the pump.

When to change cam belt on 2006 c180 with 95000kM

Mercedes engines use timing chains not belts. The timing chain should last the life of the engine and no service is needed, unless something out of the ordinary happens, worn guide or sprocket.
