mazda 626 distributor

my sister has a 97 mazda 626 with the 4 cylinder in it 2.0l. she was told that she needs a new distributor. how hard is it to replace this part. is it worth the $400 labor they want to charge her or is it something i could handle. i do all of my own repairs on my trucks but have not had any experience with these smaller cars. any input would be greatly appreciated. also, is there somewhere i can go online to look at a repair diagram?

Is that $400 just for the labor? Dist can't that hard?

that's what i'm saying. the part is $250, plus $400 just for the labor. i'm just wondering how much stuff i'll have to take off to get to the distributor.

I only have the labor guide, no repair instructions.

Dean,

Go herehttp://www.cybrrpartspro.com/Manual%...delLookup.html and see if you can find some instructions. If not let us know and we can point you elsewhere.

In fact I just went and looked myself and there are very detailed instructions and very good pictures there.
Good Luck with it.
