Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
It is not necessary to remove the intake manifold to change the spark plugs on a 2.0L engine. You need a long extention with a flexible spark plug socket at the end. To remove the spark plug boots it is good to have the boot puller designed for this instance. They can be had from a good tool store or one of the mobile tool trucks like Snap-On. The hardest plug to get is the #2. I unclip the fuel injector electrical connector and move it out of the way. Then I pull the boot and move it under the intake so I can get the socket on easily. Reinstall the plugs without the rachet. Just turn the extention by hand so as not to damage any threads. Also put a little never-sieze or something similar on the threads before installation. Then use the rachet to tighten the plugs. Reverse assembly.
