DIY spark plug change for '05 CTT?

Anyone have a link or how-to- change spark plugs on an '05 CTT? Shops are quoting $350 to change these which includes two hour labor. I tried searching on here but no reference to anyone changing their own spark plugs.

Thanks.

I changed the plugs and coil packs this weekend on my 2005 Turbo. It is definitely a DIY job. The hardest part is removing and putting on the passenger side engine cover.

1. Remove all 5 black plastic pieces that surround the engine bay area.
2. Remove engine brace on passenger side that's bolted to engine and lift out of way "big screw."
3. Remove 4 torx bolts that hold the receptacle piece for the engine brace and move out of way.
4. Remove the three silver engine covers that cover the coils/plugs.
5. Unscrew torx screw that holds the coil pack in place and pull out.
6. Remove spark plug with extension.
7. Put in new spark plug.
8. Put in new coil.

I strongly suggest replacing the coil packs as well as they are known to crack over time. They are cheap enough to do as preventative maintenance.

Hope this helps!

Thanks! That's what I wanted to hear. About how long for the whole project? Do you have the torque specs?

04 CTT spark plugs

is there a difference between the CTT and the CS?
i have an " air pump at the back that seems to be in the way on the left side.

does this need to be removed?
