The igniter is mounted externally in the engine compartment. For 1986-1990 Legend, it is on the left shock tower; on 1991-93 Legends, it is on the right front shock tower, just behind the underhood fuse/relay box. For 5 cylinder Vigor engines, the igniter is on the right fender apron, near the firewall. To remove these igniters, turn the ignition switch OFF , disconnect the connector and remove the retaining bolts. Reinstall in reverse order.
