    Hey...

    A friend of mine knows that I changed the plugs on my truck, and asked if I could help her change the plugs on her 2005 Civic Hybrid. If it weren't a hybrid, I'd feel confident that I could just open the hood and do it...

    Does anybody here know where I can find a good write-up on the plug change in a Civic Hybrid? I've searched for a while and found a good write-up for a Civic, but not the Hybrid (which apparently has 8 plugs???).

    I know this is a long shot on a board full of truck drivers, but I thought I'd ask.

    Thanks!

    Also... if anybody knows a good Honda Hybrid or Civic Hybrid forum, that'd be helpful, too.

    Not like that... I've known her since HS, and she's married to one of my best friends (also a HS buddy, roommie in college for 4 years, etc.).

    Not to mention, I'm also married.

    I ended up getting to that forum after a bit more searching. Thanks!

    OK, smart a$$... I've done that search to people before. I guess it serves me right to have it done to me. Still... I'm (usually) pretty good at google and wasn't able to initially find what I wanted.

    Since I originally posted, I found the forum Ptowntaco pointed to above, which lead me to an engine diagram, the part numbers for the plugs, a place to buy 8 of them for $65 (rather than the $25/ea the dealership wants), and a manual that takes me step-by-step through the process. As it turns out, it's easier than I thought it would be. Just a straight-up change.
