2000 explorer 4.0 sohc spark plug removal

Has anyone replace plugs 2 & 3 those on the passenger side closest to the
fire wall on an explorer 4.0l sohc engine. My plug wrench and plug cap
removal tool don't fit between the AC unit and the plug. Are there
special
tools or do I remove the AC unit to replace these 2 plugs?

This topic has been discussed many times, do a Google search and you
should find plenty of information. Easiest way is to put the vehicle
up on a hoist and go in through the wheel well.

Have to echo Big Shoe.... go in through the wheel wells for all plugs and
you can do the job in about 30 minutes. A 3" extension, a 6" extension, and
a swivel adapter, along with your socket and ratchet is about all you need.
