    Broken spark plug

    So I decided to change my spark plugs tonight, and for the first time in my life managed to mess it up.

    Number 2 spark plug, old one came out just fine, while tightening the new one i guess i must have over done it and now it wont get tight nor will it come out. It just spins in place.

    Any suggestions on a fix?

    Does warranty cover this?

    Thanks for the help

    I did the same thing once, overtightened it and broke. I was able to get it to back out with a screwdriver and some patience. Use your imagination on this one, there is no one way to do it. Just have to work the screwdriver against the plug while backing it out. Then vaccum out the cylinder to get any shards out. Its worth a try before removing the head.
    Now that I think about it mine was the number 2 plug also.

    easy outs

    but IF you have stripped it due to over tightening it is slighty harder , but can still be done

    NO warranty WONT cover human ERROR .................
