pop the 2 clips on the side of the distributor cap, unplug the sensor on the right side. Pull the top straight off. I'm still trying to figure out how to get the rotor off. there is a retaining clip towards the bottom of the shaft that can be removed once you take out the bolt holding it in. from there.....i have no idea yet.
