Hi guys, I wonder if anyone can help. I need some assistance with regards to changing the leads on a Falcon Fairmont. I'm not 100% sure on the whole ED/EF/AU series - mine is a '99 model. Cheers :)

The coilpack is a pain to get to. Two options to make it easier: put the car up on stands/ramps (not a jack) and access from below, or remove airbox and snorkel so you can reach under the intake manifold from the front.

I took the air box out when I did mine. Also swapping them out 1 lead at a time rather than taking them all off, then trying to figure out which goes where by feel alone is a lot easier too. b**ch of a spot for the coil pack, but you can only play the hand you're dealt..

Thanks guys, all sorted - removed air box and snorkel. Not the easiest place to access but I managed. Appreciate the feed back :)
