I have noticed some missing in my 2006 WRX lately and, even though miles are low, according the the 'time' side of the schedule, it may need new plugs so, I ordered some.

 

any hints, tips or warnings for pulling the wire boots, changing the plugs, access, etc. appreciated.

 

anything else nearby I should inspect or change?

 

thanx  guys

It's about the same as any other DOHC like the EJ25D, etc. Except it has coil packs and the plugs have longer threaded sections. You will want a wobbly spark plug socket and a variety of 1.5" extensions, wobbly extensions, etc. Remove air box, battery, and washer reservoir. Otherwise pretty straightforward wrenching.

OK, I have a variety of tools now from doing our H6 03 OBW.

 

guess i didn't even know i had coil-on-plug though!

 

probably a 12mm to pull the coils off? check for oil? etc. ?

Yeah 12mm for the coil pack bolts. Oil leaks would show up on the ground - the coil packs are not tightly sealed to the valve cover so any leaks would be evident long before you have to pull a coil to find them.
