spark plug change

Recommended Posts

Hi Simon,


There are several good videos on how to do a plug change on You Tube.


Apparently main dealers charge a lot of money, so it is either a good mechanic that you know or a DIY job.

Hi Simon,


The inlet gaskets are made of rubber in which case it would be okay to reuse if they are not damaged.

As Peter mentioned earlier there are You Tube videos worth watching to assess whether you feel confident to tackle the job.

I've looked at the videos on youtube and searched the web for instruction on tackling this job butcan't decide whether the throttle body comes off with the manifold or stays on. Any guidance guys?
