Hi all,

Spark Plug Change -

This is one of many ways and there seems to be a lot of debate about this...i have massive hands and this was the easiest way for me - if you are more nimble of hand and have all the proper tools then maybe go for the quicker method through the front access panel! Watch yopu knuckles!

Installing a sound system -

Crazy

A lot of these are quite basic but hopefully they can be helpful to someone!

Good find, but they do seem to be for the later ET4s

E.g. if you have a "pre-leader" engine, there's a sight glass rather than a dipstick...

Will most or all of these "how to's" apply to a S150. Is the engine is similar or the same?
