Default 99 Accord - Could sure use a quick tip

Help! I'm all set to replace the ignition coil on a 1999 Accord LX 4D, 2.3
4cyl.

Problem: The two screw/bolts holding the distributor cover in place seem
nearly rounded on the outside and very soft in the slots where a Phillips
screwdriver seems to belong. I'm scared to damage them but can't get either
one started at all. A 6mm wrench is too small, the 7mm slips over the
edges.

Any ideas or experieces greatly appreciated

Try using an impact screwdriver.

----------------------------------------

You probably need to switch to a WAY BIGGER Phillips tip, or grind a few
thousandths off the tip of the one you have. Jap phillips has a
shallower hole in it. Same is true for the screw on the distributor rotor.

Snap On has the only phillips screwdriver I would even think of using
on that..just make sure it's the right size. Otherwise....there's
always ViseGrips.
