Volunteered to change the plugs on son's P reg GAL this weekend. Lifted bonnet tonight
expecting to see them at the front(!) but it appears they are actually at the back out of
sight?!

What's the best way to tackle this job please?

hi m8

beast way is to remove the bulk head plate
3 screws
then use a long plug remover (8cm long or more)with a 16mm socket for the plug
ebay sell them

http://cgi.ebay.co.u...K...:1|240:1318

this is the one i have

when fitting the new plugs use a length of hose pipe to start the thread off
as you don't want to cross thread any of them.
i have the same engine in my gal the ford dohc

do 1 plug at a time m8

takes about 30 mins to do it all
