Changing spark plugs


After a bit of searching I haven't had much luck in finding help on how to do this

I really just want to know how you remove any trim to make access easier. Or is it a case of just using various size socket set extension bar.

Spark plug cover is easily removed with a ratchet and 10mm socket

Re: Changing spark plugs

Cheers but problem is the access to them on the Fn2. The plastic surround on the bottom of the windscreen is stopping me using the extension bar of my socket set or even my spark plug bar.

I could really do with pointer on how to remove the trim

There's 3 or 4 bolts holding the trim.

From what I can remember there is 1 on the right side, 1 behind the engine and 2 on the left.

Once these are removed you can pop the trim off.

Just remember to watch the washer fluid pipe which is attached

Once you get the plastic cowling off the bottom of the screen you need to remove the tin heat shield to gain enough room to get your extension bar in and out of the plug holes.
