replacing the hall effect...how difficult?
« on: October 10, 2012, 11:35:40 PM »
how hard is it to replace the hall effect sensor in my 88 318? my Haynes manual says its just removing the cap, the 2 screws holding it in on the outside of the distributor, and then it slides right out. will i have to set any kind of air gap with the new one? thanks

Depends if the screws are stuck.


No air gap.

Check for rotor play and see if it can be measured (how far the rotor tip moves when wiggled)

It helps to have a right angle screw driver. The fire wall is in the way of a longer straight one.
