Typical of most newer engines, the coil either is used to fire two plugs simutaneously, or each plug will have it's own coil. We will try the first.

A four cylinder engine has a typical firing order of 1342. If you split the running mates you end up with 14,& 32. The engine will have two coils, each with two high tension wires coming out and going to the repective plugs. So, that means one coil pack will operate cylinders 1&4, while the other will go to 3&2.

The other method with the plugs having it's own coil, the primary wires should be in a loom together at different lengths, and it would be hard to get them confused.

I solved the problem by looking how the leads are connected on a Peugeot 205. This has the same transistorised distributor. The firing order is 1 3 4 2 Where Plug 1 is on the RHS looking into the engine from the front and Plug 4 is on the LHS. Plug 1 connects to the Top LH Connector on the distributor (again looking from the front) Plug 2 connects to the Bottom LHS connector. Plug 3 connects to the bottom RH connector and Plug 4 connects to the top RH connector.

the spark plugs on a 106 should be in the top of the engine on earlyer models you should see 4 leads conected to them. a later model may not have ignition leads but a sort of ignition pack on top of the engine. the plugs would be under this.

Change one at a time. Pull out the ignition lead and then get a 10mm spark plug socket. Unscrew and then screw in the plug fingertight. When its finger tight, tighten 1/2 a turn. Push the ignition lead back in and repeat on the rest of the plugs.

disconnect it - jump the plugs at the ignition - fuse unit out off you go - or take 2/4 3/4 and short out the bti unit
