Spark Plug Change Instructions - Pictures


I like pictures when I read a DIY, so I made these up to demonstrate what you are in for when you want to change your plugs. Use these pictures in conjunction with the writeup by ebaker...

Superb pictures-- Just performed the maintenance this weekend on my 2004 Turbo Cab X50 and had a couple updates for the audience. Not sure if these are Model Year differences or X50 differences or both, but here is what I found:

Removing the bumperettes required a 5mm Allen head, vice a #40 TORX.

There is a slight difference to removing the intercoolers. Referring to picture # 22 (From the top), the instruction is to snap the assembly forward. #23 states to remove the nuts from the heat shield (already removed) On my car, the threaded studs are also used to secure the intercooler mounting assembly. I figured this out when I tried to slide the assembly forward and couldn't. Once the lower nuts are removed, the intercooler assembly pops right out and you can bend the heat shield up.

Thanks again for a superb corollary to the service manual which has somewhat detailed instructions on bumper removal but merely reads "Remove Charge Air Coolers" as a step.
