I will be changing spark plugs in the near future on my wife's Cayenne S (2011).  I've started searching for procedures on how to do this.  Any special tools or tricks to get to the coils, removing coils, and then access to the plugs themselves?  If anyone is aware of a write up on this, I would certainly appreciate it!  Finding DIY stuff on a cayenne is much harder than my 911!

There's a DIY over on rennlist that covers the process. It's for a 2011 turbo but the plug swap is basically the same. The biggest point to note is that getting to the rear plugs requires a swivel extension. I also bought a plug socket when I did mine to make sure I had one that was the right size.




It's not a difficult job but also take note about dropping some of the screws as the positions to get to them in/out can be awkward to say the least. I recall dropping one of mine and needing 10 minutes and an inspection camera to find it.
