Hi all,
I've being changing plugs in my cars for years, So I'm not stupid, I know how to change them, My old car (VR Berlina V6) was tricky to get the ones at the back but wasn't too bad. But looking at the engine bay of my SV8 I can't see an easy way to change the plugs. Anyone know how it is done? It looks impossible to get a standard spark plug spanner on the passengers side plugs.

As above, very simple.
I used a 3/8 drive flexi ratchet with extension and deep spark plug socket.
Took about 20 minutes plugs out and new ones in!
