Hello across the pond

Do you think you could give me some simple advice?

I have an 2003 320Ci which is a 3 series 6 cylinder soft top model in UK speak

The engine has suddenly developed a lumpy feel and the yellow engine warning light has come on. It sounds as though the engine is misfiring on 1 cylinder. Unfortunately the local dealer cannot look at it until next week!

I need to check the plugs and the plug leads quickly - a relatively simple job so long as you know how to get access to them ... and I don't. There appears to be at least 1 plastic engine shield in the way with no obvious way of removing it. Does anybody know how to get access to the plugs?

Thanks

Steve

What you just called one plastic engine shield is your access to the plugs and their wires. Locate these little round 2 caps (see pic. above) pop it with a falt screw driver and lookfor little nuts; break them loose; the cover should come out easy....enjoy the rest.
