Howdy All, I have a 2014 2.5 non turbo that I want to change out the plugs on. I have tried the 14mm, 15mm, and 16mm the 16 seems to be a little lose like its not seated correctly. Is there a special plug removal tool i can purchase?
Thanks for the feedback. :cool:

A 5/8 inch deep well socket should work. Pretty much in-between a 15mm & 16mm.

probably need a 5/8 spark plug socket. (5/8 is really close to 16mm anyways)

according to the internet Most spark plug are sae hex (5/8 or 3/4) but metric thereds(14 or 18). /shrug

A lot of the new cars now works better with a 5/8” thin wall due to the spark plug well design is so small; the normal (older) style of plug socket fits a little tighter than I like. If you are getting a new socket for the job, it’s better to purchase a 5/8”, 6 point, thin wall if it’s possible.
