It can be DIY, but to be honest lining stuff up and remembering where all the leads go I'd leave it to someone who knows what they're doing.

My Indy will be changing mine as a maintenance item later this year Get Me Coat

I was planning to change the belt on mine as preventative maintenance because I had heard it can cause damage if the second distributor stops in the wrong place when the belt breaks. But after reading a "how to do it" article in one of the Porsche magazines I bottled out and asked my indie to fit exchange reconditioned dizzys with new Beru ignition lead set at the same time. I decided it was worth it for peace of mind and knowing that the complete distributors were as good as new rather than just the belt. Just checked my invoice. £964 including complete pair of Dizzy's, leads and labour. That was in 2013.

Hi,

As well as the link Zingari put up, here is another link to a guy who has a C4 and lives in Holland. I used his DIY to remove my steering rack and found his write up with pictures really helpful.

Blimey I hope you caught that quick. I was in Northway years ago and a bloke was paying for a rebuild on his 993 caused by the belt in the dizzys breaking.

I too have heard horror stories however mine must have broken on a 200 mile trip from Aberdeen to home and the only issue I noticed was a slight but noticeable power loss........had a look over the car last night and when I removed the caps and cranked the engine by hand noticed the secondary rotor wasn't turning - everything else looks good,only changed them a couple of years ago, so I suppose it depends where the rotor arm stops. It starts on the button and I will remove the coil lead from the secondary dizzy before driving it the 10 miles to the Indy.....

Thanks for all the info - that Dutch fella explains things well - bookmarked👍

Hey Wozy Indy agrees with you, reckons I was lucky - dizzy cap and rotor arm badly burned. 112,000 miles and 23 years on original belt - should be changed as preventative maintenance.
