My service manual doesn't tell me the method to remove the distributor cap on my 350 TBI! It just says it's the first or second step to do something more complex. How do I? Thanks,

On page 6D4-6 in figure 5 of the 1990 Brougham manual, it shows the distributer. It looks like there are two small screws, one on each side that hold the cap to the distributer.
I assume it's not HEI, right? If it is, then there are 4 small screws that hold the cap down.

Thanks, I've seen the two screws but couldn't believe that it was simply held on by that. Yeah, technically it is HEI but with a separate coil. I'll give those two screws a try.

Most smaller caps have either two screws or clips to hold them on. The larger caps like the HEI have 4.

Also, why do you hate Saturns? My sister has one with 232,000 miles and it runs great!
