Well i dont think anyone has done a DIY on 24v's so i figured i would. i had never done the job on 24v's and this only took me about 30 minutes. you dont need many tools just the basic spark plug socket, a little flat head screw driver, and some plyers to get the coil packs off. my car has 41,XXX miles on it and replacing the plugs are recommended to be done every 40,000 miles. well heres the pics to guide you through.
my server is currently down i will try to update the pics as soon as possible
if you have anyquestions just hit me up
1. You open the hood and this is what you see
2. Take the engine cover off. it just pops off
3. this is the little screw driver i was talking about
4. place the flat head in between the clips to remove the top of the coil pack
5. just keep playing with the clip until you can pop it off
6. once the clips are all popped off push them all aside for more room
7. Now is when you will need the plyers
8. Place the plyers over the coil pack like so, then pull and twist until the coil pack just pops out.
9. the coil pack out of your engine
10. Now you will need a wrench and an uber long extension with your spark plug socket.
11. taking the spark plug out
12. and 5 more to go
13. NGK OEM VW spark plug with 41,XXX miles on it
14. and your done
15. Wait for your new parts.
OEM plugs are the following on the 24v VR6:
NGK PZF-R5D-1 @ 0.027" (0.70mm).
16. when you do put new plugs in i recommend using anti seize on the threads before you put the spark plugs back in.
17. dont over tighten spark plugs when you put them back in your car. 18 ft-lb or 25Nm are the torque spec's
hope this helps people
