Question Spark plug access on R172 AMG 55

I want to pull a spark plug to check its condition. How do I remove all the shields and the airbox to access it? I want to access plug number five. Anybody have a how to?

@Mensra If you're going to check your spark plugs, might as well change them. You have do to the same steps when checking or replacing.


This video helped me change mine. I'm sure yours is similar.

Checking just one isn't accurate. The one you check could be fine but the others could be soaked in oil, etc.

Heeey, do what you want .

While you have a valid point, I do have a specific reason to look at the specific plug.
