Changing Sparkplug's
« on: May 12, 2006, 01:20:08 PM »
First of all I just noticed that there are no 'sparkplug changing' tutorials.

I know to some people it may be second nature and it may be obvious on how to change them, but some people don't know so please don't flame me.

If you wish to add comments or advice please don't be afraid to PM me or post a reply.

This is my first tutorial so i've probably missed quite a few things out. But let us know :)

This was done on a factory RB25DET (but the basic concept should still apply)

First I will start with the tools that I used to do this.

NOTE: You do NOT need all of these to do this job, this is just an overview of to what I used.



1) Small socket wrench.
2) Extension arm for small socket wrench.
3) Adapter for small wrench to connect 10mm socket.
4) 10mm socket.
5) Adapter for Large sock wrench to connect SP5/8(16mm) socket
6) Can of cheap degreaser.
7) SP5/8(16mm) socket (spark plug socket)
8) Cotton Buds
9) Compressed Air gun.
10) Spark Plug.
11) Rag.
12) Large socket wrench.
13) Large extention arm for large socket wrench.

Step one: Remove the negative battey terminal and discharge all electrical charge in the car by pumping the brakes.



Step two: Unclip the small plastic plug on the coilpack by pressing down on the clip and pulling the whole plug out towards the windscreen of the car. The clip should pull out easily.



Step three: Undo the 2x 10mm bolts.



Step four: Once the bolts and the clip is unpluged you can now remove the coil pack. This is simply done by pulling it straight up. It should come out easily, if not don't use excessive force.



(Below is a photo of the coil pack)



Step five: This is what the degreaser is for and the cotton buds. Spray a very small amount of degeaser onto a cotton bud and clean up any grease, dirt, grime that you can see. Use the compressed air gun to get rid and losen any grime or dirt, then use the rag to clean up just to make sure.

DON'T use excessive degreaser. Only use enough to put on the cotton bud, then shake off any excess.




... to be continued when it allows me to post more :\

Step six: Removing the old spark plug by using the large socket wrench and the large extention arm with the SP5/8(16mm) socket (spark plug socket).
