Need help with a Subaru!

How hard is it to get the spark plugs out on these things? I have two tune ups to do and would like to find out before I commit to them. They are both Impreza's with the 2.2L engines.

People take these things too seriously!

Damn dude, pop the hood, grab a ratchet and see if you can get in there yourself.

I have an audi A4turbo and all that stuff is mostly plastic covering. after that it is a basic tune up. Just makee sure you get the manusl to the car it helps with all the torqur values and other things that you won't know off hand. With the manual you can't go wrong, sort of.

You dont need a reason to ride, just gas money and lots of time.

the scubbie sparkplugs SUCK to get out.

you need a very long extention for your ratchet. then use the sparkplug socket.

they are located on the side of the motor.
scubbies motors use a side by side style motor. so you can not get the plugs from the top like an inline 4.

not impossable just incovienient.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

On my WRX...I had to pull the air box for the ones on the passenger's side and the battery and washer tank for the driver's side. Pull the coil packs and then use some creative wobble extensions to get the plugs replaced.
