    Angry Spark Plugs

    Why is changing out the spark plugs such a pain in the groin!? From what I have tried, I have to remove the airbox, the battery and the washer resivoir. But then once I get the coil packs off there comes the problem of the ratchet extension that is a nose hair too long I have got the extension on the plugs but then there is not enough room to get the stupid ratchet on the extension. If anybody has some sort of shortcut or something that would love to let me in on the secret. That would be awesome.

    Yeah, I got the right tools and I was making it a lot harder than it was. There was like, stalagtites of carbon on the old plugs, it was kinda gross. But there was a noticable change in power, throttle response, starting and everything. I am guessing that was a little bit of the reason my gas mileage was sucking too. Thanks for the help az's02wrx
