hi there,to replace the rear spark plugs you virtually reach over the motor and do everything by feel .it is quite an awkward reach to get at them,but the hardest one is the one closest to the drivers side. there isn't much room.if it helps you can also hang a small mirror there and this helps a bit to see what you are doing.hope this helps.

You must remove the 3 bolts on the opper part of the headlight housing and then remove the entire housing. You can then reach the bulb connection

I reach over and around the top of the engine to access the spark plugs.I reach over and around the top of the engine to access the spark plugs.

..internal..i belive it is behind the timing belt, passenger side...big job ...or if you have the model i have it's so easy (Grand Caravan 2000 3.3l SE), it's located on the passange reach from underneath, i think originally there is a mud cover you have to take off and you'll have access to it

I just replaced the tensioner on my 1998 dodge grand caravan. One could reach from the back but would need a lot more dexterity along with small arms to reach it. When I replaced mine I simply took off the alternator and removed it. With the alternator out of the way I used a socket wrench and reached over the top of the engine to access the tensioner nut. One has to do a little blind work but if you can get passed this the whole thing should only take about 15-30 minutes. The easiest way is to jack up the van and reach through the back, you can also do it 'blind' if you have good wrist flexibility

Jack up the front remove front tires, move inner splash guard reach in with a LONG extension, remove and replace plugs

It is your choice. You can either remove the transmission and leave the engine alone. or pull the engine and leave the transmission alone. If your SMART you will replace all the freeze plugs in the engine.

Front bank of plugs are easy. Back bank of plugs are more difficult but can be reached from the right side(drivers side) of the engine. Make sure engine has cooled before attempting to reach in behind the engine...thereis an exhaust manifold and shield there which can be very hot.

i have an 03 aztek. i change plugs myself, i have skinny arms to reach from underneath the car.

upstream will be in the manifold, downstream refers to behind the converter Upstream o2sensor on exhaust manifold . from underneath have to reach up to where meets up with block. hard to reach . but not impossible

The hardest part is getting to them. You have to be able to get clear access to the freeze plugs. There are typically several, and often there are a some that are difficult to reach. You'll need to look at a reference manual to see where they all are. Sometimes you have to pull the engine to get to the freeze plug that is under the flywheel/flex plate. It depends where the freeze plugs are located. I just recently had the rear plugs replaced on my ranger v6 3.0 and you cannot reach them. I had a shop do the work and instead of lifting the engine out they dropped the transmission and was able to reach them from underneath.

I just changed the whole headlight assembly in my 1997 grand caravan. However, to change the parking light or turn signal indicator light, there is a round plastic plate in the front fender well in front of the tire. Pop this out and reach in and unplug the socket from the light assembly, change the bulb and install in reverse order. Good luck!

I recently asked the same question on a similar sight. To replace the back spark plugs you have to reach them from under the vehicle. You will be working blind the entire time, so plan on several hours to complete the project.

Drain the radiator. Remove the heater hoses from the fittings at the firewall under the hood. Loosen the dash, and pull it out enough to reach under to the heater core. unbolt the core, remove, then replace. Reverse the procedures to finish the installation.
