    Welcome to another UK member.

    So far I have not tried a plug change yet. As far as manuals are concerned there is a Chilton's and a Haynes available form amazon or you can try and but the CD from ebay. None of these are for RHD models so you have to be a bit creative.

    I have the v6 and it wasnt that bad to get to the spark plugs and change them. If your plugs have been in for a while they may be a little more difficult to remove.

    Hi from another UK owner , I bought my plugs (double platinum) from Ebay , they cost £40 for the 6 which is a lot cheaper than the £12 each Ford wanted to rob me of :mad: . I've got the Haynes manual , I got it from Amazon , it's OK but does cover a lot of different types of X so it's not that detailed . I got the plugs changed when I had the LPG fitted , so I don't really know if it's easy or not ;) Good luck
