Spark Plug Removal


Recommended Posts

Heard they can be a bit of a ******* being a flat four. Anyone got any tips on how to remove them before I give it a bash?

Cheers, Ryan.

They are a bit awkward the first time. You'll need a 10mm socket and spanner, a 12mm socket and spanner, plug key and the hands of a geisha girl!!!

Take the washer fluid bottle and airbox out to give you room. If your car has coil packs I think its a 12mm bolt holds them in. If your car has a single coil on top of the manifold, the HT leads simply pull off. A 4 inch extension is about right to get a ratchet onto and remove the plug. Do want at a time so you dont end up putting wrong lead/coil pack on wrong cylinder.

Cheers
