    Not sure about the freelender but on many V6's, 3 of the spark plugs are under the inlet manifold. You need to remove it to change the plugs.

I have a 2003 v6 toyota camry. i am changing the spark plugs for this vehicle. i am having trouble locating three of the six spark plugs as a mechanist told me there should be three more...where are they...


The back three spark plugs on the V6 are difficult to reach without a socket extension. if part of the engine is hindering you from taking out back plugs. then remove the part thats in the way. then replce when done. have a good day !!
