How do I remove the heat protectors?

HiCustomer The plugs are done in pretty much the normal way. The boots and heat shields are removed pretty similar to any that you have done before and no special tools are needed.

Thank you. I need just a bit more clarification. To remove the heat shields, do I grab with pliers and pull outward or should I be able to use my hand? Should I remove the shields or the boots first?

Also, are can you recommend a certain brand or type of plugs? I was thinking about Bosh Platinum.

 

HiCustomer You should not need any tools to remove the boot. Just grasp the shield in your fingers and turn it back and forth until it feels loose enough to remove. GM has a new spark plug that has a Iridium tip, suposed to be better than the Platinum it has a GM paer number of 12571164 and should be gapped at .040
