Chain guides W124 260E 1988 450000km

Is it wise to change preventively the chaine guides on my car W124 260E 1988 450 000km? they are from origine. The engine runs smooth, no strange noise.

Thanks for help

If they are the nylon/plastic type, I'd say yes, very wise at that mileage/kilometerage(?). It's not a question of if they will break, it's when.

thanks donbryce

in deed I wish to avoid the breakage.
I don't know if they are nylon/plastic or other material.
Yes that is kilometrage.

Can it be done without removing the timing chain?
