Question about 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor
Good morning. I would really appreciate your help. How do you remove the plenum on the 04 Endeavor to get to the rear spark plugs? I took off all the bolts that I could see and the wiring, but when I attempted to lift it, it wouldn't budge. Please help. Thanks. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

The front three should be easy enough. They are right in front of the intake plenum. (big black plastic looking thing on top of the engine. The back three are underneath the intake plenum. It seems like a lot to tackle but it is really not that bad.
As always, if you are not sure you have the skills to attempt this go to a qualified mechanic. I did mine in an afternoon.

Assuming it is a 2.7 litre, you can get to the rear bolt of the housing with a quarter drive 8 mm wobble socket. If you have to lift the plenum, there are bolts down the center that will need a 10 mm socket. The center cover (if it still has one) just lifts off.

If you'll need to remove the intake (or plenum) from the engine there are @ 8-10 No. 12 nuts and or bolts which hold this in place. There are also 1-2 bracket (check by the firewall) you'll need to unbolt too. Be certain to replace the gasket that is found between the plenum and the intake and do not over tighten these nut/bolts only 20ft pounds or so. If you do remove this you'll have to remove the air inlet, throttle cables and remove hoses from the throttle body, some of which carry coolant to properlly preheat the air before enteringthe engine. I have worked on several early 89-93 Monteros without having to remove this for plugs; perhaps different under the hood of the sport.
I hope this may have helped,

they are a bit hard to remove, best way to do it is, after you have removed the nuts, lift the arm straight up on its tention so its in the air, then get a cloth or rag, rap round the bottom under the arm, then tap the centre of the arm and pull at same time...NOTE!!! do not tap hard as you can ruin the thread for the nuts, so little taps should do it5...hope that helps
