Got some coils coming - believe it should be an easy job to install them?

Do I need to disconnect the battery - or just do 1 at a time and carefully?

You'll need a good 5mm allen key or allen socket if you want to keep sane.

Otherwise very easy.

Prob should do plugs when you are there, if you havent already done them.

Yep - had plugs done but they were going to charge me Ford list price plus markup for the coils.
Got genuine ones coming from ebay for $160 posted

Ford list price for coils at the moment is about $180 per set. They arent expensive.

OK - when they tried to hit me over $500 I knew I'd seen them on ebay cheaper.

Looks like I made the right choice - they had a big markup and install margin !!!!!
