Default Spark Plugs

Was going to replace them myself but noticed that they are not the easiest to get out. Is there a special tool for the job. And any tips on getting it done. Thank you

Year, Trim (LX,EX, etc..), and engine please. Put that in your signature like mine on your profile.
It's an easy job, but we have to know what engine you are working on here.

the rear 3 in the v6 can be tough, but like everyone's said, a spark socket and an extension is all that is needed. I'd add a teloscoping magnet to make it easier.

Where in the crap can I buy a telescoping magnet? I've been looking for one....obviously in the wrong places (autozone, etc..)

Mine came with the toolbox that my grandfather gave me. He use to own an Esso station (Exxon back in the day!). If you know someone with their own business, I'd look in Grainger. Otherwise, try online.
