The timing pointer in my 1980 240d is badly bent towards the left side of the engine. I need to replace it, but I'm not sure if the bolt holding the timing pointer holds anything else. It looks (size & location) like it may be a timing chain rail bolt as well as the timing pointer bolt, and I don't have an MB manual.

Can I R&R the timing pointer without disturbing anything else?

Many thanks,

Hatch

If it is the one on the outside of the engine, you can replace it by itself I believe. i wouldn't hesitate to do it.

Thanks Benzmac.

It is the pointer for the harmonic balancer.

If anyone is interested. . . I verified one can replace the timing pointer with no worries.

Just FYI
