Not a mechanic. Just trying to find out how to get to the

Customer Question

Hi Pearl, I'm Susie, so not a mechanic. Just trying to find out how to get to the distributor cap in a 1997 Tarago. Would I need to get through the coverings underneath or is there an easier way from under the seat?
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. What kind of car is it? Toyota, Honda, Ford, Chrysler, etc.
Customer: Toyota
JA: Got it. What model and year?
Customer: 1997 Toyota Tarago
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Well hoping to have some idea of the difficulty involved therefore the expense expected. Basically so I don't look completely ignorant (as I actually am hehe)
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Mechanic should know about your Toyota?
Customer: I think it's just water in the distributor cap. But I am blonde/grey.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Accessing the distributor is pretty tight and usually done from covering underneath, the seat access really dose not give you the room you need. I would leave this repair up to a qualified repair shop which can usually do it for you with about an hour of labor.
