    To change the 3 rear spark plugs on the V 6 engine you need the following tools and parts,
    10mm ring spanner,
    12mm ring spanner,
    10mm socket,
    12mm socket,
    150mm extension,
    Ratchet drive for the sockets and extension,
    5/8 spark plug socket,
    Small flat blade screwdriver,
    3x Platinum Sparkplugs ( PFR6G 11),
    Intake gasket. (MD175776)
    1 Disconnect and remove the battery from the car.
    2 Remove the air duct between the air flow meter and the throttle body.
    3 Undo the 2 bolts on either side of the manifold releasing the electrical connectors.
    4 Undo the 2 bolts holding the throttle cable support bracket and earth straps.
    5 Slide off the 3 vacuum pipes at the throttle body end of the manifold.
    6 Unclip the electrical connectors on the step motors
    7 Undo the 4 x 12mm head bolts at the back of the manifold.
    8 Undo and remove the 5 bolts and 2 nuts and washers from the front of the manifold.
    9 Carefully lift the manifold up over the studs and while turning the manifold counter clockwise place it where the battery usually sits.
    10 Place a cover over the inlet to stop anything from falling into it.
    Note
