1997 astro van changing spark plugs

Hi,
Is there a better way/trick to approach the Spark Plugs / Once you open the do house these Plugs are far down to get access from the top /inside the van, wondering what is best way to approach these all plugs / right tools to take these out without breaking any ceramic caps etc.
You have pictures that will help !!!!

Thanks in advance,

Alka

The 88 I used to own (V-6) I was able to change all plugs from the top except 1, and I don't remember which one it was, but it came out from underneath. My 92 V-8, all plugs were changed from top.

I changed my plugs on my 97 astro today . it took 45 mins. Heres what u do jack it up put it on jack stands , remove the tires , facing the inner well you will see 2 flaps that separate the tire from motor , The plastic retainers pop right out . once those are removed , you can see all the plugs . I used 2 8 extensions , 1 with a wobbly tip . A long pair of needle nose helps getting the plug wires off . Good luck

Go to YouTube.com and look for a video that shows how to do it.
