Default camshaft adjustment valve

So my car threw a cel and i took it to the shop and it was diagnosed as the camshaft adjustment valve having failed. So the shop ordered the part from the dealer and they said the part is 700 dollars! well the labor is gonna be 320 and so i was wandering if anyone knows how hard it is to replace the valve. I understand it is behind the head but i dont know how hard it will be to replace. Any advice is appreciated.

Its the tensioner. The VVT ones are indeed $700 and the nonVVT are like $100. Dont think its to hard to do, just requires some tech skills and maybe some special tool(s).

The special tool usually comes with a new tensioner, its easy to do if you know how.
Just follow the diagram, count 16 teeth between the timing marks and you're golden.

what else do I need to remove. Do i need to remove the crank pulley or just the cover? and how long would it take one to do this?

You have to take off the valve cover and take the cams loose, the procedure says to remove the timing belt but thats not needed. A shop will charge you 5.5 hours to do it. Just take off about half of the cam caps and tilt the cams off the head to get enough room to sneak the tensioner out of there. Slap the new one in (compressed of course) and count the teeth. The tensioner should come with a tool like this.

These are for the valve cover but there is also a CCTensioner out there. Look for it.
