Replacing spark plugs on Hyundai XG350?

The procedure is as follows :---

However, only remove them separately, beginning with the right-most spark plug.

There is nothing holding it in place, but it does fit snug over the top of the spark plug so you will need to pull hard.Then, give the plug an additional 1/8 to 1/4 turn.Pull the spark plug wire out.Hold the new spark plug in your hand so that you can basically see the electrodes.This gap measurement is specific to the XG350, so the gap must be made to this specification for optimum spark.

Insert the spark plug in to the spark plug socket with the electrodes facing out and insert the plug in to the engine.The gap checker looks like a flat metal disc of varying thicknesses.On the face of the disc, there's numbers that represent different inches or millimeters of thickness.Open the hood and locate the spark plug wires on the Hyundai XG3 The wires run across the top of the engine and are either blue or black (depending on the manufacturer of the last spark plug wires that were installed).Slide the socket wrench and extension down in to the top of the engine and orient the wrench so that the socket extension slides over the top of the spark plug.Hold onto the plug section of the spark plug wire and pull it out of the engine.Adjust the gap between the electrodes by bending the top electrode on the plug either up with the help of the gap tool or down along with your thumb until the gap is 043 in or 1mm.Turn clockwise to tighten the plug until you feel resistance.Attach the socket extension to the socket wrench and then attach the spark plug extension over the finish of the socket extension.The spark plugs are underneath the wires, so these must be removed.Turn the spark plug counterclockwise and pull the extension straight out fo the engine to remove the plug.Slide the spark plug wire back over the top of the spark plug and repeat same for each engine cylinder spark plug.Slide the spark plug gap checker between the electrodes.
