I've found it's easiest to magically turn green pieces of paper into having it done for you.
Fuck that driver's side rear plug.

I don't see how you could do them from below, up pipe is certainly in the way on one side. Easy enough to do from above, lift the engine a bit if you want more room. A good collection of socket extensions helps a lot.

Re: Replacing plugs on 2005 92x

Honestly, I didn't think it was all that bad when I did it earlier this year. The hardest thing is getting the coil pack out of that rear driver side spot. The trick is to rotate it. I forget which direction, but there's only two choices...

Definitely do it from the top.

Re: Replacing plugs on 2005 92x

Most folks jack the engine up a few inches from below and then get to the plugs from above.

Re: Replacing plugs on 2005 92x

Jacking the engine requires unbolting an engine mount, which is wholly unnecessary.

I've done it 4 times total on two different turbo cars, and never had an issue, and always did it from above. The driver's side rear coil pack is tough but not impossible to get out. Remember that the coil pack's plug connector is somewhat flexible.

On the passenger side, remove the airbox and the airbox tube for room to work.
On the driver's side, the battery needs to come out.

Thank you

I might as well remove IC and TB to give it a good cleaning
