Haha, it's down on the engine mount, basically take out your air intake stuff as you've done, and wish your arms were skinnier with a few more bending points, yeah it's a C*** to do anything with. :lol:

do it cold!

airbox out, or under the car, I find it easier to use a timber dowel or a long 3/8th extension and press down from the top.

easiest way is from under the car, going in along Cly 5, or is you remove the oil filter, go in along side 5 and 2 for a good double handed grip. do one at a time and its done by brail. you will not see a thing. but you will know when its in.

Bit like sex in the dark.

Just gotta make sure you are working on the right hole.

just make sure the lead goes on the correct plug, otherwise missfires and carryon will be your next posted question.
