Changing plugs

I just bought some Denso plugs but I can't seem to find a socket that will take out the stock plugs. They are recessed into the head quite a bit.

Does this take a special tool?

Thanks,
Jon

Thats odd, I use a regular spark plug socket(with rubber insert
) to remove my plugs.

Same as above ^.
Standard spark plug socket = no problems for me.

I didn't try one of those. I figured a regular sized socket would work. Maybe the walls are too thick compared to the plug socket with the rubber in it. Thanks for the help.

You are using a long socket right? Not a short socket?

Well if you do end up using a regular socket, be careful. The rubber insert helps to keep them from cracking. Cracking one of those new plugs would not be fun.

uhhh..no. They aren't cheap. They are Denso's so cracking one of them would be a costly mistake.

Thanks,
Jon
