      i have Toyota Avensis 2008 T25 (3ZZ-FE 1.6L),i’m planning to change timing chain tensioner because it’s leaking and i know i can change only the o-ring but i will change the tensioner for prevent maintenance and i saw youtube video for the procedure and after the installation they crank the engine clockwise ONLY while i checked on the service manual says crank the engine counterclockwise like for few degrees at least 10 degree and then turn it over clockwise so i don’t know what to do, do like the manual says or just crack it clockwise and it will release itself.

      please anyone replaced this tension tell me do as service manual says or just turning clockwise until i hear the tensioner clicking
