Step 1: Gather your tools, you will need a 8mm nut driver and a Phillips head screwdriver. If you donít have a nut driver, you can use only the screwdriver.

Step 2: With your nut driver, remove the three bolts that hold the distributor cap on. Notice how the spark plug wires still attached.

Step 3: Remove the cap and set to the side.

Step 4: This will expose the rotor. The rotor has a screw holding it on so donít just try to pull it off. If you cannot see the screw, feel for it and find out where it is. Put the car into gear and rock it back and forth. You will notice the rotor start to move. Do this until you see the screw. This is faster than turning the crank.

Step 5: Remove the screw; be careful not to lose it.

Step 6: Compare the two caps and make sure they are the same. I removed the wires for illustration. I still recommend you leave them on for now.

Step 7: Take a look at the points on the distributor cap. You will notice that they have corrosion on them. This is normal but it is also the reason we are changing it.

Step 8: Compare the rotors and make sure they are the same as well. Notice the corrosion on them as well.

Step 9: Install the rotor in the reverse order you removed it.

Step 10: Now it is time for you to move the wires to the new cap. I recommend you do these one at a time so you donít mess up your firing order.

Step 11: After you have done this, remove the small rubber gasket that seals the distributor cap. You might have to use a small screwdriver to pry it off. Replace it with new one that you should have been supplied with. If you didnít get one, donít worry its not that crucial.

Step 12: Re-install the distributor cap onto the distributor and you are done.
