I followed the guide, watched a few videos on Youtube, and all went well. Took me over an hour though, as I carefully applied anti-sieze.

One thing to mention, blow out the area of debris before taking out the coil packs. Mine had quite a bit of dust and debris stuck in the corners.

Also, my 04 didn't appear to have any anti-sieze applied to the threads when I took them out. I hadn't seen or heard any mention of the plugs making a squealing sound when removing them, so I was worried as the first one I took out made quite the noise.

I replaced mine at 91,000 and they looked like they needed the change. I noticed my car now starts up much quicker with the new plugs. Just slightly turn the key and its on.:grin:
