How to tighten timing chain ?

My timing chain on my 94 E320 is showing a little slack. What is the proper way to tighten the timing chain and what is the tension?
Will appreciate any help.

Thanks

That is done by the timing chain tensioner. NO external adjustment. Controlled by oil pressure & internal ratchet inside of the tensioner.
