Anyone in GTA have Spark Plug Socket for N54 I can borrow tonight?

Hi All,

I'm trying to help a friend out and change the sparkplugs in his 335i. Of course, my standard sockets won't fit into the cylinder head sleeve.

If there's anyone from Toronto/Mississauga/Oakville/Burlington/Hamilton willing to lend me their specialized socket for the evening, it would be greatly appreciated!

Or if anyone knows where it can be purchased locally, that would be awesome too! Budd's BMW says they don't sell it.

Thanks!

Are they really that special? My E46 used a standard plug socket that I have in my socket set. Really nice because it has a rubber washer in it that hold the plug so it comes out with the socket.

So is a normal plug socket wall too thick? Or is it a non standard socket size?

It's a 14mm 12 point and it needs to be very deep.

If you can find a 14mm 12 point deep enough you can use that, but you'll need to be careful as it won't hold the plug in. Some ppl use a rubber hose to make it stay in or to start the threads.

I think it's a thin wall socket. Try n54tuning.com

I was hoping to avoid ordering one online - not keen on waiting another week - but might have to do just that.
