Hello and thank you for using

I am assuming you are inquiring on plug#6 in the rear by the firewall. Thats the only plug that is a pain in the %*#. Excuse my French. I actually have a 3 tools that reach in there easy, but they are not something someone would have home in there garage. I use a 3 inch extension with a impact swivel and a 4 or 5 inch spark plug socket. It slips right in there. I would see if you can use a spark plug socket with a 3 inch extension then swivel and another 3 inch extension and see how that reaches. You may need to bend the metal brake lines a little to get your hand down there to guide it into place.

There really is no trick. The trick is to figure out what tools can make it just a little easier.

If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!
