Can't get #6 plug

Tuning up a 97 GC 4.0L I6 and can't get to #6 (in front, partially blocked by the a/c compressor). How the heck do you get to it? Luckily I didn't "need" to do the tune-up; just wanted to do it after the K&N FIPK install last night.

USE A UNIVERSAL JOINT SPARK PLUG SOCKED.

I just did mine coincidental with my water pump replacement. I had the spiral wires and plugs for months now, and this was the perfect opportunity. With the belt off, it just takes four bolts on the A/C compressor to get at the plug. I am also replacing the belt while I have it off.

Once I get the new pump in the next few days, I hope that it will all come back together nicely, leak / squeal free and spark friendly. Right now, the engine looks like a mess all torn apart.

There are two ways that I have done this. One use a “wobbler” socket extension” or use a universal joint with a standard extension.

For replacing the spark plug, stick it on the end of a piece of fuel hose; for geting the first couple of threads started.

^^What they said. I use a universal joint socket and a 12" extension (its just what I have lying around) to get at it. Works great.

Pic of the type of socket I'm talking about...
