Front plugs V-6 remove engine logo cover and air boost box, use looped end longe needle nose pliers to grip boots at base and pull up, easy to do when engine is still a little warm, I use a Thorsen brand spank plug socket and 12" extension, the Thorsen does not have rubber boot which may stick to plug when installing.Rear plugs, remove the 3 bolts on coil pack, slide back an inch, use same tool to loosen boots from plugs, use same 12" extension and socket that you used on front, there is just enough room for that extension to slightly rub rubber hood seal on firewall. remember to properly gap plugs .052-.056" and to hand tighten them first before placing ratchet onto extension so you know plugs are grabbing threads properly. I just performed this job on my 2001 V-6 Cougar and took just around 30 minutes, no need to spend many hundreds in a shop to change your plugs... another tip, if you have air, blow the spark plug pockets out after you remove the plug wires in case any were loose and debris had fallen inside, mine were pristine...
