spark plug socket / wrench size

please can someone tell me the size of the socket and size of extension for the wrench when changing spark plugs on blobeye wrx.

the plugs are located two on either side of the Boxter engine. the one to the drivers side is awkward as reqires a particular size extension to get to the plug.

Re: spark plug socket / wrench size

16mm spark plug spanner and a small ratchet , the key is making room to get in, water bottle/airbox out the way, after you have done it once its a 20 min job tops.

these can come in handy
Gedore 2093 HR-94 Hand ratchet 1/4" - Gedore Tools

the plugs arent very tight 15Lb ft

Re: spark plug socket / wrench size

thanks, but what size extension arm ? its the drivers side due to inacessability. i am not technically minded, but all i know is the socket clicks into an extension piece which in turn clicks into a wrench ??

I dont use any, I find that the small hand ratchet and the spark plug socket to be fine,
I use ratchet spanners 12mm for the coil packs.
