How do you remove the distributor rotor set screw on a 1997 Honda Accord SE four cylinder not VTEC with the plastic cover under the rotor blocking access?

In order to get the set screw in a position so it can be easily removed, you have to get the rotor to rotate. Act as if you are going to start the car, but only hold the key in the start position for a split second. The cars engin will turn over, and the rotor will rotate, hopefully to where it is easier to get the screw out. If not, try again.

The distributor assembly on a Honda Accord sends a spark to each engine cylinder at precise moments throughout the combustion cycle. It is controlled by the rotation of the cam shaft.

Yes it does. If it is a 4-Cylinder, it is on the transmission side of the engine cylinder head. If it is a V6, it is located on the transmission side of the front cylinder head.
