Default V6 Spark Plug Removal

Any tips on removing the last two spark plugs in the back of the engine of a
1992 Camry 3.0 V6? If my arms were rubber it would probably help but I
sure somebody has a better idea.

I have not done this but previous conversations indicate two six inch
extensions and a swivel socket will do it.

I removed the centre bolt from the rear engine mount and jacked up the
engine about an inch. This also rotates it forwards slightly. This was
sufficient to get that slight extra room. Don't overdo this though.

I also used a length of plastic hose to manipulate the plugs once loose in
the recesses, and a universal joint on the socket extension.

I have done it recently on my 2000 V6. Having read a number of posts
on this board regarding what's the best way to change the back 3 spark
plugs. I used a combination of 3 inch extensions (2), 6 inch extension
(1), a universal joint and a swivel wrench, I managed to change all of
them. My suggestion is to find the combination so that your wrench can
turn. This require some trial and error. Use your left hand to
provide support for the extensions and right hand to turn it. The only
thing that I have to disconnect is the tube connecting to the PCV valve
so as to provide more space to access the plug closest to the passenger
side. Hopefully your 1992 is similar to my 2000 in the arrangement.
