Ok so I removed the two bolts to take out the timing chain tensioner but it hits the little shock from the serp tensioner. Now I cannot take it out or put it back. trying to put it back causes it to tension the chain way to much because it cannot retract without taking it out. any ideas need it done today

I believe you need to partially remove the belt tensioner in order to provide clearance for the removal and installation of the chain tensioner.

 

From my experience with the Matrix XRS, this involves supporting the motor and removing the front-passenger motor mount, and then jacking the motor up. Once there's adequate clearance, relieve tension on belt tensioner and remove serpentine belt.  Partially remove bolts holding belt tensioner to motor.  You don't have to remove it completely. This should finally provide you with enough clearance such that the chain tensioner can be removed.

Same with the Corolla XRS too. Remove the 12mm nut at the top and loosen the 17mm until you have a couple mm's of space to fit a pry bar in and gently pull the tensioner away from the engine and then the chain tensioner will slide out

I believe it is M47 and not a N47 but dont understand why as its less problematic and surprised me when they did say Timing Chain Issue.
