X2 except I would use an actual spark plug boot remover which is like a set of pliers but won't damage the boot. I always used a u-joint on top of the spark plug socket to get to that particular plug.

#1 spark plug removal question

97 Wrangler 4.0L
I just finished changing the plugs, wires, cap, rotor and coil. easy job except for #1. I did not do that one since it is buried underneath the heater hose and a wiring harness and it is behind the compressor, did not want to yank the wire out and spend half the night screwing with it. my question is, do you need to move the AC compressor our of the way to remove the #1 spark plug or is there enough room/angle for a socket and long extension. any thoughts would be nice, not looking forward to spendinig half a day on one plug when everythign else only took an hour.
Thanks
