1988-1992 BM 735i


Tools Needed

  • 3mm Allen Wrench
  • 8mm socket
  • ratchet
  • flat head screw driver
 pull the cover off at the front of the engine near the fan.
may need to use a flat head screw driver here



This is what you will see with the cover off.

DO NOT UNPLUG THE WIRES



 You can not see these because the fan in the way but there are 3
8mm bolts that need removed as pointed
on on the new distributor cap going in.


 once the 3 bolts are removed the cap can be taken off
you will now see the rotor inside.


this is removed by 3  3mm Allen wrench bolts

Once removed the new one can be put on same way
the old was was removed.





 Now take the new distributor cap and start moving over the spark plug wires over one by one making sure you are putting them on at the same place there where on the old cap.




it is now ready to be put back on by sliding the cap back over the rotor and putting the 3 8mm bolts back in tightly.

Then the plastic cover can now be snapped back into place.
