timing chain guide derailed

Decided to upgrade my tensioners on 1980 911 during the holidays. They sounded loose with a metallic clanging noise at idle.

Pulled off the right cam chain housing cover to discover the black rail from the top had broken off and was at the bottom of the case. The pin that snaps into the guide was still in the guide at the bottom of the case along with the parts of another rail. Question and/or serious problem. The pin appears to either have snapped or was pulled out. I can see what appears to be a line of threads on the end.

Is this pin threaded and screwed in from the inside or outside of the case or is it pressed in? If it has snapped and the threaded portion is still inside of the case, how would you go about getting it out or fixing the problem. Thanks.
