Spark Plug Change

I have a 2015 Honda Fit EXL. When is the time to change plugs? Can I change the plugs without taking off the wipers and wiper shield? The clearance looks tight...anyone done this themselves?

I think you can if you have a swivel socket. It's probably not worth the fight and just better to remove the cowl cover. Plugs are 100k miles but do have a tendency to come loose so they should be checked for tightness before then.

MM should tell you when. I haven't done it yet, but looks like plenty of clearecle without taking anything off like the previous gens.

I think the last Fit with easy plug access was the GD3. At least that's how I remember mine, no wiper motor in the way.
