Distributor cap replacement

First, I am not much of a mechanic. I just want to replace the distributor cap and/or rotor on my 98 Protege. I have a pretty good idea of how to replace the cap but just want to know if there is anything special I need to be aware of...anything unique to my year and model that might be an obstacle.

Any advice would be welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Not in particular. Both the cap and rotor only go on one way.
Just remember to replace the plug wires correctly.

Thanks. I was able to replace both the cap and the rotor with no problem. Yet it seems like that wasn't my problem.

Gonna have to start a whole new "help me, I'm an idiot" post
