Is changing the spark plugs really that bad?
I've always heard it's a pain in the ass on a subaru. The manual makes it seem pretty easy, just remove the battery and the air intake. Is there something I'm missing? It's just the normal NA 2.5 L, not the turbo or 6cyl.
Any special attachments or tools needed other than just a torque wrench, a few extenders, and a spark plug socket?
The manual says to use 15 ft-lbs for new plugs, but to reduce by 1/3 for lubricated plugs, which would be 10. They don't mean reduce to 1/3 do they (5 ft-lbs)?
