Now you just need to remove the plastic still hiding the coil packs</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">DSCN0926_zpsh1e7mixs.jpg</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">DSCN0927_zpsxronfnrq.jpg</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;"><br></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">7.

Now simply unplug and remove coil pack, to be safe I'd say do one at a time, be careful when unplugging as the plastic can be brittle due to heat.</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">DSCN0929_zps8jsduhqk.jpg</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;"><br></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">9. removed coil pack, plugs are deep down there. but easy removed with slim plug socket and extention.</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">DSCN0930_zpsduc9zisd.jpg</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;"><br></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">DSCN0931_zps64e770vz.jpg</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;"><br></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">10. Plugs out, see the difference, a much bigger gap, lets hope this improves my mile per gallon.</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">DSCN0933_zpstc8bl3uv.jpg</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;"><br></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">11. Putting together is a simple reversal of job, no manifold gasket required as its a durable rubber unit.</span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;"><br></span></font></div><div><font face="Arial, Verdana"><span style="font-size: 13.3333330154419px;">Hope this helps somebody some time, it really is a easy job whe nyou see whats what.</span></font></div>
