I just changed mine last week & it isn't any fun . Took me all day!. By removing the air intake I was able to reach over & down behind the alternator & touch # 1 with the tips of my fingers. Then I bought a 3/8 drive & 5/8 deep socket with swivel attached, with the swivel separate, it was too long to get the ratchet on. There is a sheet metal seam o the inner fender that is sharp & will cut the back of your hand if you don't put tape over the edge. Good luck,

I think the forward plug (passenger side) is not the real problem. It's the one behind it that looks to be a real problem. Talked to a mechanic who maintains a fleet for a county here in Virginia and he says you need the sockets and universal AND a flexible extension. And it's still a b....h. Thanks for the input about the tape. I'll wait for warmer weather before I tackle this one!!!
