Engine has to come out to get to the chain at the back. There is aslo a chain at the front.

A slapping noise from the engine could indicate a tensioner needs to be replaced. Usually what happens is the guide,pictured on the left side of the chain goes out from wear. It is teflon coated. Definitely not a back yard, shade tree repair, even if you have the special tools made for just such a repair.
