Honda Fit 2015 Spark Plug problems

Hello,

I am having problems with changing my sparkplug since the sparkplug socket doesn't fit in the engine. I've removed the plastic portion that sits on the spark plug and the sparkplug is exposed by I can't get the socket into the car. Is there any solutions to this? I'd rather not go to Honda for them to do it since they charge $140 a hour for service.

Thanks!

You can rent tools at some auto parts stores. Does your local canadian tire offer this service?

Another option is to find a local auto shop who can lend you the tools, or have them do it for obviously less than the dealer charges.

My dad rented out some special tools he needed to replace wheel bearings on his VW fox a few years ago. I plan to do the same when I will be servicing the clutch on my 6MT Fit.

Why are you replacing spark plugs this early? I have 77 k kms on my 2015, and am planning for spark plug service at 160k kms. The fit comes with NGK branded iridium spark plugs with planned service at 100k miles. I would not worry about spark plugs at this time. Wait for the maintenance minder.

I agree, why in the world are you changing your plugs? Waste of money and time.

Spark plug sockets vary in diameter; finding one that fits shouldn't be too difficult.

As a tip, I tape the socket to the extension using electrical tape. This assures that the socket won't detach when the plug is extracted. Good luck with your service.

If you want to, after all, replace the spark plugs more frequently than the maintenance minder calls for, then you are better off actually purchasing the socket that fits with your choice of plugs. I would recommend the cheaper regular type spark plug for more frequent service. No need for the long life iridium stuff.

Hey

So i ran into the same issue!!! ended up turning down a 5/8 spark plug socket get it in and wtf it doesn't work. After looking at the part store for plug that fit this car, I found you will need a 14mm or 9/16 spark plug socket.

I hope this helps someone it killed my weekend not getting the valve adjustment done due to not being able to remove the spark plug.

Cheers
