In all the years I have worked or scooters bikes and cars, I have never torqued a spark plug. Tighten with fingers, put the wrench on and snug it down about a quarter turn. Plug has a crushable sealing washer.
Remove spark plug wire with a spark plug cable remover tool. Blow out debris around spark plug. Remove spark plug with spark plug socket, extension and ratchet.
Use a gap gauge to set the proper gap on the new spark plug. Screw it in loosely by hand. Then tighten to the published torque spec using a torque wrench. Apply a dab of dielectric grease to the tip of the spark plug cable and reinstall the cable. If you don't have those tools, don't try it.
My info says 11 ft lbs--motorcraft. That would probably work just fine for auto lite. I usually just snug-em up, no torque wrench. Sometimes it's awkward trying to get torque wrench and whatever applicable fittings in close spaces. If you can get a torque wrench in there, so much the better.
tools: 10mm and spark plug socket wrench, rochet extensions, rochet and a torque wrench, T30 torque set and a (BMW)screwdriver. - remove cabin filter(3 cover knobs) and cabin filter housing(4-T30 bolts or screws). - remove four bolts and cover of the engine. not to forgot to cover oil fill after taking out engine covers. - take out the wire by slipping up the lock. - remove 2-10mm bolts of the ignition coil and take out one by one not to evrything. then you have your spark plug.
