500 SPARK PLUGS 1242cc FIRE

20220916_150437.jpg
Having watched a few YOUTUBE videos.. there were still unanswered questions

This car is a 2018 european 500 -69bhp driven for 3 years.. then traded in
I bought it 6 months later
On its '4th birthday' I decided to fit the modern plugs I had ordered.

This GUIDE should cover the process of accessing the 4 sparkplugs, and safely rebuilding after.

The Start:

Set aside a few hours.. you want a Cold engine.. and a Guarantee you can dedicate 2 hours to get this done



Disconnect battery if you are unsure

Place the vehicle key safely outside the car :)



Access:

Remove the 2 x hex bolts either side of the aircleaner box

Then use a flat screwdriver to slacken the clip in the Rubber oil vapour hose

Gently raise the front of airbox ..so you can wriggle out the FreshAir intake hose

Once that corrugated hose is out you can pull off the Black hose from the top of engine ( do not drop that hose clip.. it can be slid along the hose)


AWKWARD PART NEXT..

I am thinking of replacing spark plugs on the wife's FIAT 500. This certainly helps. Thanks for the write up.
Did you notice any difference running the car?
Would you recommend specific sparks, I tend to go for manufacture recommended.

Thanks for the feedback :)

I asked around on here and there isnt much choice with plugs...

BUT.. general concensus = factory issue are poor
And Iridium plugs are recommended
HOWEVER.. there isnt a direct replacement..

I Fitted the Bosch Iridium in the pics

No obvious difference.. but they should be good for 30k..not the 12k of the basic plugs
