    Shouldn't have a problem mate, the coils should pop off quite easily, remove the engine cover, disconnect the wiring on the coil, pop coil off, take out old spark plug have a look at the condition of it, put a bit of copper grease on the new one around the thread and put it back in the engine just dont cross thread it when your putting the spark plug in.

    What plugs are you using??

    You probably know there was a product recall on the B6 for coil packs , if not check with the dealer if its been done.I got 2 new ones replaced free of charge last August !

    coil packs on recall are only the ones that bolt on not the push on ones like mine ...... just swoped plugs over only took 15 mins dead easy to do

    Wrong way round mate, it's the push in ones that are on recall. I had all 6 swapped last winter, they're the red push in type. My car had 2 fail together, so I phoned Audi who confirmed the car was due for recall and changed the lot of them free of charge.

    It's the push on ones I got all 4 replaced on my 1.8t. They now have a grey top instead of black, I would phone your local Audi again or try a different one.
