4. Disconnect a vacuum hose from a diaphragm on a distributor wall.
5. Mark the provision of installation of the distributor on a cover of the valvate mechanism.
6. Install the N1 cylinder piston in the provision of VMT at the time of a compression step. In this situation:
   – the index on a cover of a gas-distributing belt has to be combined with a mark 10 ° to VMT on a pulley of a bent shaft;
 – the tip of the runner of a rotor has to be turned to the plug of a wire of high voltage of the N1 cylinder on a cover raspredelitet;
– the runner of a rotor has to be combined with a mark in the ignition distributor case.
7. Turn off a tightening nut.
8. Remove a clamping plate.
9. Remove the ignition distributor.
