Your bike should have came with a tool just for that. If it has been misplaced you might find one at a local auto parts store. It does not look like a tool per-say but is very thin and long enough to fit down in to reach the plug, with a hole to put a screw driver through to turn it.

Where is plug and tool required to remove it

Hi Anonymous:

There are several "plugs" on a vehicle engine.
Knowing which one you are looking for would help.
- Spark plug - Follow wires from where they are "bunched together" to where they spread out and are stuck on the ends of THE SPARK PLUGS. The right sized special deep socket is the correct wrench.
- Oil drain plug - located at the lowest part of the engine. You'll need to hoist the vehicle, put it on ramps, or place on jack stands to get at this.
- Frost plugs - pressed into the engine to protect it in the event that the coolant freezes. No wrench.

Where is the spark plug?

The spark plug will be located on the engine under a rubber "boot". Remove this boot and you will see the spark plug. The boot is attached to the spark plug wire, you should be able to spot it pretty easily.

Grip the boot and pull it off, it will have a little resistance, but it should come off with no problem.

You will need either a spark plug wrench or a deep socket wrench to remove the spark plug itself.

Only use the tool the loosen it, then use your fingers when you can.

Good Luck!

What tools are needed to change spark plug?

I'm sure this is a trick question but you will need a spark plug wrench or a deep socket of the appropriate size for your plug. They do vary in hex size. If you look in the handbook it will tell you the correct plug. Take that info to a small machinery dealer and you can check a wrench against the correct plug.

Thats not the problem i have spark i just want to change them but they are about 4-5 inches deep in head and in difficult spot. do i need specail tool?

The problem with changing some motorcycle spark plugs is getting a socket to them--once you're able to slip a socket on the plugs, you can usually get an extension into it and a ratchet onto that. However, if you can't get at your spark plugs with a deep socket and regular extension, you might want to get a so-called "wobble extension" that lets you pivot something like 10-15 degrees while still having a solid connection to socket and to ratchet. I have used my 3" wobble extension quite a bit when dealing with motorcycle spark plugs that are deeply recessed. That set-up usually lets me get the socket and extension into the spark plug well in one piece, rather than dropping in a socket and fishing around with an extension to connect it up.

There are four spark plugs to change. The spark plug wrench in the motorcycle tool kit will remove and replace the plugs. If the tool kit is missing you can go to the Honda dealer and order just the spark plug wrench (separately off the microfiche tool kit page) necessary to do the job (about $10). The Honda spark plug wrench has a built in grabber to lift the plug out of the deep head access hole.

Cannot figure out the size of the socket wrench needed to remove spark plugs. It needs like a slim socket to get it in the socket well.

You are always best off using the wrench that Honda supplies in the tool kit. It is designed to fit in your motorcycles head and has a grabber to lift the plug out of the spark plug hole. Provided a previous owner did not keep the tool kit or forget to put the spark plug wrench back in the kit . If you do not have a tool kit , you can purchase one at a Honda dealer or , if they want too much for the kit , you can order the spark plug wrench by itself , probably for around $10.

What tools will you need to change spark plugs and which spark plugs do you recommend

You will need a socket wrench with a 16mm or 5/8in. socket. You will need a T30 (torx) to remove the plastic cover on the camshft cover to access the plugs. To install:
5- & 6-Cylinder Engines
  1. Be sure the spark plug gap is set to 0.030 inch (0.763mm).
  2. Carefully install the spark plug and tighten to 20-22 ft. lbs. (27-29 Nm).

8-Cylinder Engine
  1. Be sure the spark plug gap is set to 0.028 in. (0.712mm).
  2. Carefully install the spark plug and tighten 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm).

Make sure to use some plug grease on the threads to keep them from locking up. You will probably need an extention if they are deep. You may need a magnet pen to get the plugs out of the deep hole. Good Luck!

How do i change the spark plugs on a 99 subaru forester?

Subaru Forester Spark plug removal: First, you must remove the air cleaner housing Move the tube from the air cleaner and the intake on top of the engine by loosening the hose clamps at each end. It is still attached to a hose underneath but can be put out of the way

Remove the top of the air cleaner and the filter.

Remove the two 12mm bolts at each side of the bottom.

The side of the bottom is rubber gasketed to the inside fender - just rotate slightly each way to loosen and pull off and put off to the side - there is still a wire attached.

Now pull off the spark plug caps on the side of the engine. This is a boxer engine which means the plugs are in a horizontal position on the sides. It is good to have a pair of spark plug pliers to do this as they are really difficult to remove. (spark plug pliers form a circle on the end when closed and are nice to grasp the caps with). Now you will need a 3/8 drive socket wrench, a 2" extension and a 5/8 deep socket Connect the extension and socket and feed it into the spark plug hole and over the spark plug. It is really deep inside. Now attach the wrench and remove the spark plug making sure you keep the tools level so as not to torque the plug side ways. Once the plug is real loose, unattach the wrench and hand loosen the plug with the extension because the wrench won't fit to remove the extension and socket attached. Remove the extension and socket and then spark plug. Put in the new plug reversing the steps.
