im having trouble with the last sparkplug i need to change on the foz, its the rear passenger side one and theres almost no room to get the coilpack all the way out.
is there any tricks to making more space by maybe jacking up the engine or somehow moving it without taking the damn thing out?

i had enough room to do it on the drivers side, not sure why theres so little room on the other side....

Just have to wiggle it the right way. Its all about the angle of the dangle.

Cheers guys, thats the diy i used from the start. Very helpfull, especially with the hex head extension.

The other 3 plugs came out no problem, its almost like the engine is sitting too far to the passenger side :(
Ill just have to keep angling and dangling until it comes

Passenger side rear is the worst.

Put your other hand on the manifold and push the motor. Probs only need to shift it 5 -10mm over and it will fall out.

Did this today, but on a bugeye sti. I did the passenger side from underneath so i didnt have to touch the battery, washer bottle etc. Couldn't do the drivers side from underneath due to equal length headers being in the way. First time changing plugs on a turbo subaru, easier than expected.

Wrx is easier than forester. Forester is the worst as it has the engine spacers so the engine sits lower in the front chassis rails.

Once you remove the body spacers on a forester it aint so bad haha.
