  • SnapOn spark plug removal tool

    Hi,

    my local Snap On dealer told me, the spark plug removal tool (Part.Nr. S9727K), is no longer available. The part ended in Dec.2006.
    Is this statement true ?

    Greetings from Germany !

    IMHO, the best spark plug socket bar none is the Hazet magnetic one. They have an 11/16" one, and an 18mm one. The 11/16 fits like a glove on the Bosch plugs, but won't work with the NGK. The 18mm will work with both. It's expensive for what it is, but you can probably source it locally for <40 euros.

      I'm using a standard 11/16" deep socket from Snap On. It fits perfect.
      my Craftsman socket same size was too thick-walled.

        can you just grind down a craftsman 11/16" to fit for the Spark Plug?

            I use the Craftsman 17mm 3/8 drive and it works, although if you bump the sides pulling out it may fall off or the spark plug is a bit too tight.

              if you wrap some masking tape around the plug the socket will fit snug and this wont happen, i use this trick on my bike.

                i just picked one up from my snapon guy today. they changed the part number a few times from 07. the new one has a magnetic insert instead of the rubber. seems to work just fine
                price was around 35 bucks USD

                        Nice box, I know my ancient snap on box couldn't do that.

I got lucky at my local Advance Auto when I stopped in the other day to pick up a couple parts for one of my other cars and saw that they had a 32mm wrench on clearance which I picked up for 16 bucks.

                            :thank you

                              I used to have the Snap On socket but I lost it in our house fire....I had to grind it down so it would fit, but it worked fine otherwise. I have since bought the Hazlet tool and it's much better IMO....but costs much more too!
