Ignition timing should be checked and adjusted whenever spark plugs are replaced or any distributor maintenance is performed. Ignition timing at 1000 RPM or less should be as follows: on 1989 1.3L/4-79 engines, 3-7°BTDC; on 1990-92 1.3L/4-79 engines, 0-2°; on 1.6L/4-97 engines, 1-5°.

I haven't personally worked on the Charade before, but the process on all 3 cylinder engines is the same.
The firing order is 1-3-2 and because there is an odd number of cylinders you will never get a situation where the inlet/exhaust valve on cylinder x is fully closed leaving the inlet/exhaust on cylinder y fully open (in contrast to engines with an even cylinder count).
Instead, you just choose whether to start with the inlet or exhaust valves first and then adjust cylinder 1. You then turn the engine over by hand until whichever valves you chose to start with are fully open on no.3 and adjust those and then the same on no.2. Starting again at no.1 you then do the remaining valves, so if you started with the exhaust valves, now you do the inlets.
Hope this helps, if so please return the favour by taking a moment to rate my answer.
