I have no spark plug rail

My 98 Sport has no rail. The front plug is wedged in behind the A/C compressor.

So, do I have to buy a belt tensioner tool to change my spark plugs? If I remove the belt to remove the A/C compressor to remove one freakin' plug then it seems that I do.

This can't be right.

Try a "wobble socket extension" Harbor Freight or Sears. It allows a little rotational play of the socket so you don't need a straight shot. It worked for me.
