Hi
The chain tensioner is a self contained unit with a spring and ball bearing, the whole unit should side easily in the cylinder head, when the tensioner is empty of oil you can compress it when in use it fills with oil, the ball bearing keeps the oil in and compressing it becomes more difficult.  By pulling back the plastic rail away from the chain it should lift the tensioner as well.

Thanks for that Paul.For some reason the smaller cylinder has backed right back into the bigger cylinder,having a nightmare pulling small cylinder back out,Don't think it was like that when I dismantled timing chain,Think its compressed back over lip and can't seem to budge it,may have to get new one.Cheers
