Mazda 1.8L Special Plug Socket??
I am thinking about replacing the spark plugs in my 1999 Mazda 1.8L, it has about 40K miles on it.
But, looking I find that the four plugs are mounted vertically and reside about 3-4 inches below the head/valve (??) cover. The HV Wires go to cover and have a stiff rubber extension, again about 3-4 inches long that "reached" down below to cover to connect to the spark plugs. It would appear that it takes a special socket to remove/install plugs. The socket would have to be long enough, much longer than the depth needed to go over the head of a spark plug, and have a sponge (or something) lining to hold the plug to pull (place) it up (down) in the "hole".
Any advice/experience out there? Appreciate any tips/tricks.
