Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace a spark plug on this 2010 Volvo XC60 with the 3.2 liter inline six non-turbo engine. The items you'll need for this is an 8mm socket and ratchet with an extension, a 5/8" spark plug socket, and a gap tool.

Lift up on your engine cover and pull it free. Then along the back of your engine you'll see your six ignition coils. On the one that you want to replace, just push the tab on the harness and disconnect it, and then remove that 8mm bolt. Now pull the ignition coil up and out.

Now using your spark plug socket you want to just remove the spark plug, which is down inside the chamber. We'll fast forward as Don removes that.

Use a gap tool to adjust the gap on your spark plug. To do that you just bend it with these tabs and then it should have just a little resistance on the right size. You can find the appropriate size needed in your user manual.

Then just put your spark plug into your socket and then feed it down into place.

Take your new ignition coil and push it down into place. Then replace that 8mm bolt. Now reconnect your harness. Make sure the grommets on your engine cover are in place and then push the cover back down into place. You're all set.
