Default 2000 V6 camry spark plugs

I want to change the spark plugs. I see three, where are the others and how do I get to them?

the other three are in the back, tight spot! The rear three have normal spark plug wires unlike the front 3, so you just pull on the head to get it out, but you will need to use the tools toyoboy said to extract the plugs. Definately tight if you have large hands/arms. Careful of a few sharp metal edges too, you dont want bloody arms like i got!

Also use the factory plugs, do not go bosch. Denso Platinum double tip.

you can try any of the denso or ngk plugs that fit the camry with no adverse affects but bosch seems to have given some individuals problems. its really hit or miss.

i just say go with what your car came with since it works and it works for a long time.
the only upgrade would be iridium plugs, but its not worth the cost in my opinion.

haha wish i said that before you changed ur plugs dont you?

basically my experience with the camry and a few other cars...if you dont modify the factory parts or upgrade, you are way better off replacing things with factory parts/oem replacements.

shouldnt mix japanese with euro either...haha
