    Actually if you have a swivel extension and a straight extension, the back three plugs aren't all that bad. Take off the coil pack (4 bolts). Once the coil pack is out of the way, that will free up enough room. Still a tight squeeze, but it's better than taking off the intake manifold. It's a little time consuming, but if you have the tools and patience, I'd recommend doing it yourself.

Plugs and wires 2005 mercury sable


What engine do you have, I will assume a DOHC V6, the DOHC V6 doesn't have spark plug wires, each spark plug (located under the igntion coil) has its own separate ignition coil, it is called direct ignition. You unbolt the coil and remove it with the attached spark plug boot and then you remove the spark plug from the cylinder and replace, do one at a time.
