Good Afternoon , Your safest bet will be to remove the head. It sounds like you are trying all the other possibilities

Okay. Just remove rocker cover. Take belt off then chain and remove the shaft and then take out the 8 bolts holding the head in place i assume
Automotive Expert
In one sentence, yes that's correct . I dont have the full instructions since i'm in the USA and we don't have that engine here

Okay thanks. I possibly think he has drilled into the housing off the glow plug.
Automotive Expert
you may want to look for a used head

Okay. See the glow plugs aren’t actually on the head housing there. Actually on the block its selfs
Automotive Expert
that is the head , the top part is the valve cover

Okay thanks. Regarding taking the chain off and putting it back on. I just need to keep it in the position. I took it off am I correct?
Automotive Expert
yes , if you can mark the chain and top and bottom gear .

Okay. Thanks for the help. Much appreciated!
Automotive Expert
you are welcome
