Broken Spark Plug Removal Question
Tonight I set about replacing the infamous 2-piece plugs in my car with the updated ones that aren't supposed to have the snapping problem. I got through 7/8 just fine, but the last one, of course, snaps. I bought the Lisle tool in case this happened, but it looks like the plug broke in the one way the tool is useless to fix. The center conductor sheared off about .5cm above the ground shield, so the lisle tool has no way to get down and dig in to the shield to pull it out. Short of removing the heads I see no way to get it out, but I had a thought. If I cranked the engine with the fuel pump relay removed and all the coil packs disconnected so there was nothing left to fire, might I be able to pop it out like a cork, or is this an extremely bad idea? Otherwise I'm left with having it towed up to the dealership and having to deal with their prices... Is that going to be my only option?
