How to get to back plugs

3 Answers


There are 8 individual coils, each one has a plug attached to it (red arrow) squeeze and pull to release plug, there will be a small bolt that holds the coil down, use a 7mm socket to remove it (blue arrow), remove coil (green arrow (sometimes their a little tight so give it tug). The plug will be at the bottom of the hole, a long extension and a 5/8" plug socket will do it, to install the new plug, drop it into the hole, put the socket and extension into the hole and start it by hand. Then reverse the procedure.
