plug and plug wire removal

Is there any particular type of plug wire puller that would reach the plugs on a 1997 S-10 with a 4.3? It looks like one wire on each side has a straight boot while the others are at an angle. Are there any special tools required for this job?


Thanks for the tips

No special tools required... I use to use long nose needle nose plyers when doing a tuneup... the number 5 plug is a PITA to get out and put back in thanks to the steering shaft being 4'' in front of it

I am going to Harbor Freight tomorrow so I may as well pick up a pair of long needle nose. Do the curved ones work better than the straight ones? I noticed the 5 behind the steering column and wondered how tough that would be. Then again the 6 plug dont look to fun either. Actually 2,4,and 6 might be a PITA by having to work around all the AC and computer stuff. Any recommendations on plugs? It still runs ok, just skips every now and again, i'm almost afraid to mess with it...heheheh thanks for the help
