Unbolt the two bolts on either side of the distributor. Disconnect the 2 lower electrical clips. Disconnect the upper clip. Slide distributor out, when re-installing it make sure the distributor "teeth" line up with the slot on the camshaft. Replug everything back in.also make sure it is on top dead centre on compression stroke or the timing will be way out!
