Manual Cam Chain Tensioner HELP!

So my CCT was going on on my 02 F4i. I changed it to a MCCT from APE.

My only problem is how in the fudge do I tighten the locking nut? I have tried everything that I have in the tool box. There isn't much space where I need to tighten.

Any tool that is recommended for this?

I'm assuming that you're talking about the locking nut on the tensioner bolt. I think it's a 5mm nut so if you can get a swivel head wrench, you can reach it that way. Or you can remove your fuel tank, disconnect your fuel lines and shove your hand into the hole and tighten it by hand. If you want, add a small bit of mild loctite. You may want to think about adding the loctite though, because one, its a lock nut and shouldn't come lose without some significant force, and two you're going to be adjusting that bolt/nut in the future to readjust your cam chain.

Wth would you need a grinder for?
