Not sure I understand your question? Did you pull the tensionner out?

The procedure is to take the valve cover off, tie-rap the timing chain to the pulleys then pull the old tensionner out. Insert new tensionner, torque to spec and you will have to reach in to press on the chain to depress the tip of the tensionner.



If you need to reset the tensionner just push and twist clockwise.
