Remove leads from top, remove clips from sides of cap, take off and put new one on. Make sure to get the leads back on in the right order.

Changing teh distributor cap is easy man...LOL

The artistic bogan method is to get yourself a white marker and eight coloured textas... now place a white dot on each lead and also a dot next to it's position on the cap...now get your coloured texta and go over the white dots marking up pairs between the cap and lead.... Now pull the leads of being carefull not to rub the coloured marks off. Unclip the cap and place alongside your new cap...line up the clips makeing sure they're both sitting identically...there maybe a notch underneath the cap so it can only go on one way... now make corresponding coloured marks on the new cap...then reclip it on and fit the right leads to the right coloured dots...:thumbsup:

Disclaimer::This method wont work if you're colourblind :D

ive got an even easier way than all of the above
remove the leads from the plugs
remove the injection 5000 covers
remove the coil lead from the cap
unclip the cap
manuever the cap from the vehicle
place the leads back on exactly the way they came off

replace the rotor button and cap while your at it too!

I would recommend getting it fixed, no good in the long run for your engine if not fixed.
