Default Tools Used For Sparkplug Replacement

If you've done some research on how to change the plugs, you will know how much a PIA it is. If you have the right tools and some patience it can be done.
The top tool is a antenna magnet for all the nuts and bolts you will drop within the engine bay. Next is the life saver, a ratcheted, adjustable 12mm wrench. This is good for the back 3 bolts. Those bolts will have to cuss'n and bleeding w/o this wrench. Bottom left is a 3 inch extension and next to it is a 3/8 universal socket adapter. That was for the wire harness which did not go back on. All these saved me from removing the wiper assembly.
Btw, once I got the manifold off, I found my blow-by hose was dry rotted, so I replaced it. That's the hose that goes from rear to front valve covers. It was $10 at the dealer.

Another helpful little gizmo is a 1 foot section of 3/8 hose. His will help you remove the plugs as well as get them threaded in without cross/treading especially on bank1.

My rachet wrenches are the best tools I have and will never get lended out. Also leave the upper 2 bolts off that connects the manifold bracket to the upper block of the engine. This will save time for if you decide to take it off again or adding intake spacers

I am so dreading the spark plug replacement in 35k. Those ratchet wrenches are life savers. I lent them out and got two back broken without a word said so i don't lend them out anymore either.
