It is not impossible to do them from underneath the van. You can also try removing the wiper tub.

To get the wiper tub out you'll need to remove,

the wiper arms
the plastic cowl cover
5 or 6 10mm nuts
4 or 5 13mm bolts
Unplug the wiper motor

And pop the whole assembly out. There will be a lot of room once it is out.

    It's a catch 22. Either way there not the easiest to get out. Personally I do them from underneath most of the time. On the other hand it only takes about 20 minutes to pull the wiper tub. The most difficult part will be getting the wiper arms removed from the posts. Sometimes they can be a real bear to get them to break free.

    Well, i'm here to inform ya, even with the wiper assembly out of the way, you need plastic man to fit his hand between the body and the intake manifold!! Goin at it from below!!!

Got 3 spark plugs in back of motor whats the fastest way to change them. I have a 3.1 motor

This is how i changed the plugs in my old 3.1 Lumina. Remove the top motor mounts. Set the parking brake and start the motor. Shift to Reverse. This will tilt the motor forward and allow you some access to the plugs in the back. To get the motor back into position to reattach the mounts, just release the parking brake and the motor shound rock back into position. It may be necessary to shift to drive, though. You might have to jam a metal bar somewhere in between the motor and frame to get it to maintain position. It's been a while since I've done it, so I don't exacly remember where I jammed the bar. But this is still the easiest way I've found of accessing those rear plugs. Hope this helps you out. Best of luck!

WhaT IS THE EASIEST WAY TO CHange the back spark plugs on a 2005 chevrolet equinox?

The easiest way to change the back plugs on a GM V6 is to pay someone else to do it. You need good light, good tools, lots of various extensions, swivels, and universals. A good vocabulary of curse words also comes in handy.
