6918 Ford Spark Plug Remover
OTC's Ford Spark Plug Removal Kit is designed to prevent breakage of the
during the removal procedure. The unique design helps prevent breakage by
locking the plug porcelain core -- this allows the complete unit to turn.
First install the collet holder assembly onto the spark plug hex and
tighten the collet screw.
Next, install the upper socket over the hex of the collet assembly.
Use the ratchet to remove the spark plug.
If a standard socket was used and only the hex portion of the spark plug
was removed, but the entire porcelain insulator and ground electrode shield
remain in the cylinder head, then we have a separated spark plug.
Thread the nut onto the collet screw to the adapter.
Continue threading the nut to pull the porcelain and electrode portions of
the spark plug out of the cylinder head
For Best Results, always remember to follow the detailed instructions
included in the kit.
It's that simple!

DIY Ford 5.4 3V Spark Plug Removal Without Breaking Plugs
This was a video that was request quite a long time ago numerous times by

did had the engine at operating temperature pulled all the coils out and

How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight
turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right
turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are
easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of
what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball
joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I
often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't
know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue
doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake
the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If
you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check
out this article I wrote on the topic.
