    Is it just me? There's 3 screws holding the distributor cap, and the one on the bottom is a real bummer to get at. Was the factory idea to remove the distributor, and then remove the cap? Does Honda make a special, offset wrench? Or is this simply a challenge tossed out to mechanics, to find a creative way to reach that screw? I can't be the only one whining about this.....any ideas?

    Just remove entire distributor if you can't access the bolt.
