I don't recall anything wild for these other than getting things carefully out of the way.


Not sure on this but sometimes from underside or thru wheel well might be easier,

If I remember correctly, removing the front tire and using a swivel socket was the easiest way to get to those.

thanks for the info ,was able to get the first two out on right side but the last one towards the fire wall and across from the AC evaporator is the problem,can't get to it from wheel well just need some small hands and a special tool,got about 3 inches to get a socket in there.

If you can get the plug wire off this should be easy just you don't have the right sockets and tricks. Dang - there are plug sockets that are deeper, 12 point, 6 point, hex on end so you can use an open end or box wrench not a ratchet and more.


Wish I could muster a picture of even several assorted types. Hope it helps that you just know there are lots of assorted types and you wont just find them in parts stores for some real tricky ones.


Again - If you can get the boot off it will work with plug socket that you put a wrench on the end where a 3/8th ratchet would have gone instead,

Trying to find some pics if they show.........

Even something like this maybe just shorter or cut one down and drill holes like that idea,

Sorry if they don't show or expire or just search images for spark plug sockets,
