Back to 2001, L322 Range Rover were designed together with BMW and for E38 7 series. Though before the mass production launched, BMW sold out Land Rover to Ford company. Before its successor L405 are unveiled in 2012, L322 are recognized as best 4X4 sport car with many owners. 
A great video about replacing the chain tensioner of L322 Ranger Rover, 2003-05  Land Rover HSE 4.4L V8 with the Engine Code:M62.
The major parts our friend replaced are the chain & guide. He found out there was an oil leak problem at the cylinder head bank 1-4. Despite of changing cylinder 1-4 is good enough, he replaced all of them. The timing chain was stretched as visually can see the length different. So timing chain system also got replaced and now his 2002 Range Rover is like a brand new one.
Here is his Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlZ3wxh3rVg
