Right. I've yet to see any dealer admit that those plastic top rails age poorly and cause problems.

If I owned a 420 car with the M116 engine, I'd have it done. I would NOT replace the top guides without changing the chain. I'd do the chain, the guides, and the tensioner, and then sleep well at night.
