I am only a beginner in the world of engines and tech stuff, but I have decided I have been ripped off for far too long taking my car for repairs.
I want to change the distributor, and I'm just wondering if anybody can tell me which parts and tools I need to buy, and if anybody could talk me through the process that would be perfect.

Thanks for all your help, and sorry for being so stupid.

Oliver,

I hope that you don't mean that you were getting ripped off because you had to pay to get your car serviced. We have purchased several tens of thousands of dollars in tools to properly repair Mercedes autos.

That aside, you will need a 1/4"drive 5mm allen socet, a set of extensions, some specail pliers to remove the boots without tearing them. That is to get off the cap. To replace the rotor, you will need a 3mm allen made by Hazet so you will not round off the internal corners of the bolts. IF you do, you will have had a bad day.

Good luck with your trials. and errors.

Thanks for the info. I don't think I have been ripped off because I was charged for a service. I think I have been ripped off because I have been charged 800 for labour, and in the "12.5 hour" period they managed to scratch my car, dirty the interior, and create a lot of problems which were not present before hand.

Thanks again
