Greetings again,

You will have to remove the ignition coils first the procedure for that is here. After that,

Spark plug removal:


Each individual spark plug is located under each ignition coil. Each individual ignition coil must be removed to gain access to each spark plug.

  1. Remove necessary air filter tubing at throttle body.
  2. Prior to removing ignition coil, spray compressed air around coil base at cylinder head.
  3. Prior to removing spark plug, spray compressed air into cylinder head opening. This will help prevent foreign material from entering combustion chamber.
  4. Remove spark plug from cylinder head using a quality socket with a rubber or foam insert. Also check condition of ignition coil O-ring and replace as necessary.
  5. Inspect spark plug condition.


Special care should be taken when installing spark plugs into the cylinder head spark plug wells. Be sure the plugs do not drop into the plug wells as electrodes can be damaged.

Always tighten spark plugs to the specified torque. Over tightening can cause distortion resulting in a change in the spark plug gap or a cracked porcelain insulator.

  1. Start the spark plug into the cylinder head by hand to avoid cross threading.
  2. Tighten spark plugs. Refer to Spark Plug Torque Specifications.
  3. Before installing ignition coil(s), check condition of coil O-ring and replace as necessary. To aid in coil installation, apply silicone to coil O-ring.
  4. Install ignition coil(s).

Good luck,
