Spark plug diy... need help!

Hey guys. So I recently decided to do my spark plugs and changed out 6 plugs successfully, but I am having trouble with the 2 upper plugs on the passenger side. I cant seem to find any angle to grip the old plugs. Can anyone help me. I can basically come to you anywhere in NYC. The help would be greatly appreciated.

You need a series the socket and a series of extensions dropped in individually, as well as a swivel. Check the change tool and DIY threads for details. PM me if you'd like

I just ordered plugs and I'm thinking about doing it myself. All the DIYs mention a coil puller. Do I really need that tool? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Anybody around NYC have one I could borrow?

Did my plugs last week. It wasn't too bad. Took about a little less than 2 hours and I took my time. Definitely need a swivel extension. I used a hanger and large screwdriver to get the coils out. I did break one of the top of the coil pack though. I rushed it and put too much force. I have one on order but without the top it still works perfectly fine.
