    Spark plugs rotation....??

    Hope i've posted in the right place,
    I'm just wondering which way do the spark plugs rotate to get them out is it anti-clockwise or clockwise

    because i thought it was left losey (anti-clockwise) and righty tighty(Clockwise)

    but its so bloody tight it seems both ways are tightening it, and i don't want to mess up the thread lmao

    yeah anticlockwise to undo, if u run the engine for a few mins to heat it up a little then they will usually come out easyer but will be hot so be carefull
