Spark Plug Removal

K. So I'm a wee man and was able to remove 7/8 of the plugs save for the pass side #4 plug. I cant find a haynes or chilton that tells me how to disconnect the egr crap safely to get to it. Anyone have a resource for this?

Picture?
I don't have to disconnect anything to get mine out, but yours may be different.

That and I used a "cut down" spark plug socket.
I took a regular "cheap" spark plug socket and shortened it with a cut off tool to as short as it could be and still get a full grip in the hex of the spark plug. This made it much easier to get into and out of tight spots.

Lots of spark plug sockets have a hex shaped end on them. Can you use a wrench on the socket instead of a ratchet?
