One of the main features of the series of cars VAZ 2101-2107, which is popularly called "classic", is the contact ignition system, which is considered very inefficient. However, good, instead of a contact distributor, you can install a non-contact, and this work is simple, and it can be done independently. Let's see how to remove and replace the timer.
Before you get started, make sure that you have the following elements at hand:
- Ignition kit - distributor, coil, switching unit and connecting wires;
- high voltage wires;
- DVRM spark plugs (4 pieces);
- Tools - wrenches, screws, drill and screwdriver.
Just say, this whole kit will cost about 2000-2500 rubles, but those who changed the ignition system are convinced that the game is worth the trouble - with a contactless system, the car becomes much more pleasant to manage.
