Note: Some models are fitted with a modified ignition coil and single earth electrode spark plugs. This modified coil is identified by a grey (rather than green) sticker. Refer to the Servicing Specifications at the start of this Chapter for the recommended plug types. It is not permissible to use new plugs with an old coil, or vice versa.

1 Where applicable, remove the air cleaner.

2 Pull the HT lead and fittings from each spark plug, identifying them for location if necessary (see illustration). On the 16V engine, the end fittings incorporate extensions, as the plugs are deeply recessed in the cylinder head.
