    Default Changing plugs on 1.8

    Not used to having the plugs hidden from me at the back of the engine, under some sort of bar, can anyone tell me how to get at them? Is there a how to?
    Sorry to be so basic, but last car had the plugs in the traditional place, at the front, pull off the leads, straight in with the socket, no messing!
    Yes I am old!!!!!!

    You have to move the "bar" which is the coil pack and sits on the plugs. It's attached by some torx screws which you have to remove (4 IIRC).

    Then the plugs can be seen, you'll need an extension bar as the plugs are quite recessed into the engine.

    They are on the top of the engine too, under the main cover. As Simac says, remove the coil pack (unplug, unbolt and pull upwards off all 4 plugs) then unscrew each plug with an extension bar on the socket.

    If the rubber of the plug socket is worn and won't lift the plugs out, simply fully loosen all the plugs and then push the coil pack back into place and lift all the plugs out together.

    Refit is as easy as removal, but makes sure the coil pack is firmly attached to the plugs

    And it does work too, my plug socket has seen better days... but it's not a problem when plug are inclined, or are to shallow enough to get to.
