    I love this board!! Ok well I guess in case anyone needs to replace their own sparkplugs one day, this might help.

    The WRX doesn't have spark plug wires. It is a direct fire ignition meaning that there is a coil on top of each sparkplug. The coils are visibly seen once you remove the washer fluid tank on the driver's side and the intake arm on the passenger side.

    The coils are the little back square things , that are near the very bottom edge of the boxer engine. 12V, was all I could visibly see from the darkness of the garage I was working in. They are located next to the engine bay walls. It was very tedious in removing the coils and one you figure how to twist out the coil, removing the actual sparkplug will be even harder.

    There is very little space to move your hands in working the plugs in and out of there so I suggest taking a several hours off to handle this project if you are inexperienced in working with the boxer engine.

    taking out the plugs almost definitely requires a spark plug socket and an adjustable angle ratchet attachment.

    otherwise, you're in for a long, arduous job.

    in the future, rather than getting frustrated and sarcastic, give the search button a try.
    A simple search for "spark plug" in the TUTORIAL forum yielded this :

    staggering, huh?

    also, you can find links to many helpful instructions and tutorials in the Tutorial FAQ Thread, stickied at the top of the forum.
