I have just done this on a cast-iron head ..... plug head was rounded off and insulator cracked. The only way was to completely remove the insulator core (much time, cursing and swearing) byand then use an ezi-out to extract the remainder being careful not to let anything fall into the cylinder. Also be sure the piston is at BDC so you don't damage it as well. In hindsight, when it was found tight, I should have left it alone and taken it to a professional. Good luck!

Remove the spark plug wire or coil and use a padded socket to remove the spark plug from the head. Examine the old spark plug for wear patterns.

First you need a Torx head screwdriver(the proper size of course) to remove the two torx screws that secures the wiring head that leads to the spark plug.

If you have the 2.2 liter engine, there are two (2) bolts that hold the cover on the top of the engine. These bolts will require a hex head (Allen wrench) to remove and tighten. Remove these bolts, lift the plastic cover up, and you will see the four spark plug wires leading to each spark plug. Twist and then pull straight up (you may have a plastic hook on each wire) to remove the wire. Then you can use a 5/8" spark plug wrench with a long (6") extension to remove and replace each spark plug.
