Distributor woes

Stupid me, I tried to replace the distributor cap and rotor by myself
on the 200, found out that I could not get the cap back on.

How the heck do you do this without pulling the intake manifold?

Long story short, now I have a bent spring clip on the distributor,
distributor cap won't stay on (because I couldn't get the top clip
back on the cap) and I have a dead car- have to flatbed to my mechanic
to get this fixed.

I also found that I had the wide rotor in the car, the replacement
rotor is the correct narrow tipped one.
