(In case you haven't changed the spark plugs yet).

The strut tower brace should be torqued to spec at the 3 bolts per side, but the two inner 13mm bolts are good to go. Just be a little careful because there'* a spacer plate that enjoys falling out. Once that bar is removed, changing the rear plugs gets easier each time. I no longer need a light or anything but a ratchet, 2" extension, and a socket.

Best of luck!

Hey Guys,

Finally got around to changing my plugs and wires this week and it was much better than anticipated. With my car being a 2005 SLE, i didnt have the cross brace to worry about, and there was enough room behind the engine to actually fit my hand and pull the boots off and change the plugs.

Thanks for all the tips and pointers on the little task. I think all in all it took me about an hour to do. Not too bad for a first timer! The value of this forum is huge!! Thanks again guys!
