How on earth do you change spark plugs on the 5.3L passenger side?!?!

I can barely fit my hand through the engine compartment, even when taking out the washer fluid container ...

Any thoughts on how to reach those plugs?

I hope someone who has done this answers. I don't even get how to change the driver's side plugs yet :laugh:

I hope so too! :)

The passenger side is tough ...

The driver side plugs are right there in front of me, and with a little tugging on the cables, on both ends, out they come! The only hard part is getting the new plugs in there because the angle is a bit lower than I expected. Nothing to be afraid of!

:iagree: That's the way I had to do it on my 2000 GMC Jimmy....Just jack it up put a jackstand under that side and take off the wheel. There may be some plastic in the way but you should be able to get in there with a socket. It's all about compact designs these days...Goodluck :thumbsup:
