Time to replace spark plugs. Need a procedure to reach the firewall side plugs or do I need some more tools? I have a Haines manual but it ignores the whole issue.

I've never tried any online repair forums.
Thanks for the help.

Wish there was a magic trick but there is none. Got to reach in there and remove them.

Page 1-24 (section 29 - rotating the engine) of your Haynes manual gives a good step by step of the "engine rotating" procedure.

This will allow adequate access to the right side plugs/wires.

Dear Tractorwilly,

Thanks for the reply. My Haynes manual is "Buick, Oldsmobile & Pontiac Full-size Models, 1985 thru 2002". I rechecked the index, etc looking for anything about rotating the engine but there is nothing mentioned. Looking on the back, it looks like I bought the wrong manual, this only covers the LeSabre, Electra, and Park Avenue. Back to Autozone for the right manual. Thanks for the reference.
