Their seems NO easy way to replace the rear plugs on these G.M. 3.1 cars. BUT you can unbolt the motor mounts that are located on the front of the engine and with your pry bar between the firewall & motor pry back and stick a board or some other kind of wedge in there. This will gain you around 4 more inches of room and you can use a ratchet with a swivel to get the plugs out!!

How do you change the spark plugs on a 2000 Malibu?

To change the spark plugs on a 2000 Malibu, you need to get a spark plug socket with a u-joint in order to access the plugs on the firewall side of the engine. The plugs up front are easy to get at, and don't require anything special. Word of warning, if your Malibu has relitivley high mileage on it (80,000+) and it still has the factory plug wires, there is a good chance that they will break on you when you have to pry them off of the plugs, go ahead and replace the plug wires when you replace the plugs.
