Default Preventative Maintenance On Timing Chain

A general question about Timing Chain Maintenance. I've read in this forum that Nissan has a poor design on the guide causing major repair bill, sometimes into the thousand dollars. My 6th generation Max is lucky (2005 SE, bought new), so far with 104,000 miles on it without timing chain problem yet, but I don't bet on it. I maintain my car at home and done such things as brakes, spark plugs, shocks, and rear bearing replacements myself. I like to attempt service my timing chain maintenance at home. So my question is: what parts should I purchase for this service, and can I replace them without dropping the engine? I have lots of time and patience and I have been doing all maintenance including clutch, engine swap in the past. Thanks.

It can be done without dropping/pulling the motor, but you need to be REALLY carefull not to drop any nuts/bolts into the oil pan when you have the front cover off.
