    hello everyone,

    I am looking to change my spark plugs in my 2002 6th Generation accord.

    what spark plugs should I buy? what are the dimensions?
    also , I want to do it myself , so I want to buy a spark plug key as well. what key should I buy?

    some ebay links would be appreciated.

    Call up HH and they'll supply you with genuine spark plugs

    Otherwise, input your reg no into this site Euro Car Parts | The UK's Number 1 Provider of Car Parts Online and In Store

    Make sure you buy the NGK spark plugs - they only cost a little more. Free delivery and returns too. I would not recommend ebay for this sort of item especially seeing as savings will be very small.

    I was looking for NKG or DENSO.... both on Ebay , the nkg for 13 pounds and denso for 15 pounds...

    I was not going to buy anything else... now it s a matter of nkg vs denso...

    I found the EXACT part number for my engine , that it s not a problem...

    nkg is ZFR6F-11denso is KJ20CR-L11


    will buy one of them...



    BUT what about the spark plug key? which one to buy? this is the real question because I am adamant to do it myself.

    done

    bought nkg ones and found a 3 pound spanner on ebay. should not be very hard.

    the only problem that I see is removing the old ones... as I think they were NEVER changed..

    The one you want is NGK ZFR6F-11, these are the ones Honda use, and they are pre gapped, and no need to put anti seize on them.

    For tools, you need a 16mm spark plug socket and a 250mm extension bar, and a torque wrench.

    I use these 3:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Draper-1392...926241&sr=8-1&keywords=draper+250mm+extension

    Laser Tools Spark Plug Socket 16mm 3/8"D 1650 | eBay

    Don't buy any Silverline hand tools, they are rubbish and only good for the bin!

    ^ Highly recommend the excellent guide by Andy there, it's what I followed when I did it for the first time, and it made it a breeze to do.

    Always insist on NGK , denso are hit and miss with me

    Also some warning about using copper slip on plugs thread pitch http://hondakarma.com/threads/155/

    Be careful of buying plugs on ebay or grey market

    I managed to remove them today to see if they can be removed.

    all spark plugs came off easy. and this is after 95000 miles.

    still the original ones in the car , not bad at all.

    I am waiting now to receive the new ones in the post. IMG_20140130_114412.
