Ok i've tried using the search feature on this website to find spark plug installations and that... so far ive seen topics on it but they arent too helpful.. what i needa know is how to take them out and that

-Do i need any special tools to get them out?
-How do i remove them from the coil pack
-How to install and ensure they're in there
-Does the engine need to be NOT hot whilst installing?

If anyone could help... i would really appreciate it hehe

Hey mate it is pritty simple just unplug your coil pack and pull it off the plug just like a spark plug lead. Get a spark plug socket and an extension undo them like any other plug. The hard one is number 6 cyl the way I did it was use to small extensions put the socket and first extension down the hole then use the second one to undo the plug.

Hope that helps mate. Sorry if it doesn't make any sense I am in a hurry got to get to work :cry:

You need a 5mm allen key tp get the plastic cover off.
Then for number 6 cylinder I use a 3/8th drive plug socket to 2 inch extension to universal joint to a 6 inch extension.

do they need to be tightened to a certain point? my friend told me to hand tighten them as hard as i could then use a tool to tighten them by turning half once.

There is a torque rating but I am not sure what it is. I have always done them up firm not to tight but tight enough.
