I had a heck of a time with the rear when I first did the plugs, also. It'* almost as if they glued them on at the factory! It took me much longer just to do one plug on the rear than it did for all of the front! I managed to get 2 & 4 off by hand, but had to twist them about 3/4 turn. #6, I finally put some vise grips on them at 12 o'clock and spun it to about 9 o'clock before it came loose. It sounds a lot easier than it was. Any spark plug boot puller I had was too big to get into the tight space.
