Replacing inner timing chain case

I may actually replace this in this car in a few years.
Will the motor have to completely be removed?

Why does it need to be removed? Is it cracked or broken?

If you were able to get another bolt to tighten down properly, I would leave it alone. It will be a lot of work for a very small gain.
