Do a search on YouTube. There are some good videos on there showing how to remove the sparkplugs without breaking them.

Just did mine about 6 months ago. No problems. Take your time spray a good amount of penetrate, I used Sea Foam. Then loosen 1/8 to 1/4 turn tighten back slightly, go again. They broke loose after a few tries. The issue is carbon build up inside the cylinder and grabbing the plug causing the ceramic to break. Read the TSB. I pretty much followed that. Lisle makes a tool for removing broken ones, it's about $70. I didn't need it. Just take your time and use anti-seize on the new ones. I don't think anyone sells the two piece design anymore. I had about 90k when I did it.

I put in E3 plugs. I like them, they seem to be better than stock. I'm sure this will start an argument as to which plugs are best.

they can, if they break ford charges like 100-150 per plug to fix. If you pay ford to do it and they break you still get charged the same.

Agree here did the same thing just be careful not to put to much penetrant so you don't get hydro lock I believe it says that in tsb. I used carb cleaner. Just remember if It doesn't turn don't force it
