2003 OB Wagon 30,000 miles
Its time for new plugs and filter.
I was looking at the plug access and they look pretty good except the one Driver side towards the rear of the car. I have pretty big paws and it looked tough to get to. Should I remove the window washer tank or is there another trick?

Thanks for the help

If it is a 2.2, it should be the same as my wagon. The way I did it was with a "knuckled" extention on the socket wrench, I forget the exact name.

And use NGK Iridium spark plugs they last a long while, better than 60,000 miles and you get better ignition because of the very thin electrode. :-)

Ian is half-right. NGK V-power coppers are the final word in Subarus. There is no better plug, period. It outperforms any other plug you can possible use. The only downside is they don't last 15 minutes:brolleye: ... Iridiums will not quite offer the performance of the V-powers, but they will last much longer...
