If the left rear window works, it's not a fuse. Possibly a window motor but more likely the switch in the center console.

The topic has been covered in earlier threads. The M103 engine does not have a history of chain problems. Only the M116 and M117 (V8s) are prone to bent valves on the left bank.

My advice before you get too heavy into the chain is to pull both covers, rotate the crank with a 27mm, and check the timing marks on the two cams. If they aren't right on, you've jumped timing. Also...
