Pull off a spark plug wire,, may have to twist and pull.Get yourself a spark plug socket from any auto / hardware / tool store and extension for ratchet and loosen out spark plug.Before you pull out plug you may want to blow plug area with air hose so as no dirt falls in hole.If you are doing all , do 1 at a time so you dont mix up wires.

Word of advice...
wear gloves!!!!

I swear every time I change or even look at my spark plugs, I scrape my hands on something. Just a little annoyance, that'* all. Oh, and if you find the metal spark plug wire covers, discard them. They just make future changes more difficult

Good luck!

If you are doing your plugs for the first time do yourself a favor and get a set of wires.

Please continue in that topic instead of double-posting.

Double-posting splits your information (related) between two topics and is more difficult to follow, making it difficult for us to help you.

Get a blanket and put it over the top of the motor, and CAREFULLY climb in there. It makes it alot easier to get the #2 (behind the alternator).

See you in your other topic.
