Cannot locate 958 V8 Spark Plug change tutorial or at least list of to

Recommended Posts

I have a 2012 Cayenne S and I have looked high and low and cannot find a tutorial on changing the plugs on the 958 V8, only the 955. I have changed plugs on many vehicles before so it is not the basics but rather the unknown tools that may be required or tricks to getting a difficult plug out.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks. I think I figured out all the tools I need as well, just need to find out what the gap should be set at. I am thinking they may be pre gaped but I always check and double check. If anyone knows please let me know. I will try to post a summary when I am done listing all tools and specs.

I like to change my own basic maintenance as well. I located this link which was helpful



the angle bit driver can be bought at Lowxx for a few $ less than Amazxx


the magnetic long reach spark plug kit can be ordered at Lowxx as special order or also available on Amazxx as "GearWrench Tools 41740 3-Piece 5/8-Inch Magnetic Universal Spark Plug Service Kit" for a few $ less


i dont have any instructions either, but i guess it's just removing the covers, accessing the coil packs, removing the connectors to the plugs. 


as mentioned above torque to 22lbs but i'll just feel for the 'crush washer' being crushed.
