JLR Land Rover / Range Rover 5.0 Timing Chain Tensioner | What's Making That Clicking Noise?

This customer's 2011 Range Rover HSE Supercharged came in with the notorious tensioner/chain slapping noise that's very common of JLR 5.0 V8's. While the engine was also in need of a supercharger isolator, the tensioners were the old style and in desperate need of replacement. 

Here's a short clip at the tensioner's skipping.. the cause of that wild rattling/ticking noise. 

Everything else all buttoned up. 

Unfortunately this wasn't a job I was too keen on keeping a camera on. Takes a bit of concentration to not send the cam phasers into oblivion.
