I've combed through this entire forum looking for someone who has changed their spark plugs in their 2010 Subaru Outback and can't find anything. Has anyone done this? Are there any DIY threads for changing plugs on this model car? The plugs look fairly easy to get to after removing the air intake, I just wanted to talk to someone who has done it before who might be able to save me some time and trouble. The dealer wants $276 to do this and the NGK plugs cost $35, so I'm wondering why so much labor?

Thanks, David

The dealer labor rate is around 105$ an hour, not to bad of a job. Get a nice long extension and a wobbler to a shorter extension.

Take the battery out and as much of the intake off as you need. Depending on your hands and socket extensions, you may need to move the washer fluid reservoir as well. Once there is a little room, the SOHC 2.5 isn't bad for a plug change at all.
