not too hard but fiddly, and if you have just driven the car it will be hot of course.

I understood the sentence, but maybe I'm just tricky :P

I got it done for 60 bucks... hehe one less weekend not spent under the friggin car.

Not too hard, as long as you've got the tools and a hoist. Maybe 15-30 mins work.

It should be fine to drive 10km. Worst case you'll foul your plugs !

I drove much further on a broken valve spring and all was fine :)

Best way is to use a long extension (40+cm) with an 8mm bit on it, go from the top through the bbm, The passenger firewall one will require a 8mm spanner done from underneath.

You can do them by raising one side of the car (passenger) chuck the front wheel under the rail and a block of timber for safety and to protect your rim.

Also disconnect the neg on the battery, as you'll be working around the starter and underneath.

Shouldn't take more than 30mins for the coil pack, and roughtly the same to reroute the leads (with checking)
