5 cylinder engines
The illustration is of a 5 cylinder engine seen from below. The plug can be accessed from below on 5 cylinder engines.
Remove the shield under the engine (where applicable).
Clean any oil and dirt from around the existing plug.
Remove the plug by pressing a hole in the rubber in the center of the plug and then prying it out. Use a small screwdriver.
Installing the plug
Thoroughly clean any oil from in or around the hole. Use isopropyl alcohol or similar.
Install a new plug by tapping it in. Use a long socket with a maximum outer diameter of 16.5 mm. When the socket bottoms out the tone will change. See
the following step.
When the plug is at the bottom the measurement (A) from the upper edge of the plug to the upper edge of the hole must be approximately 8 mm (there
may be some variation due to casting irregularity).
