changing spark plug

Having problems getting a plug socket on my newly accuired 2006 400 max.
I have the tool kit but none of the sockets fit. I assume it is the other end of the socket that fits the lug nuts, but is tool tall to get into the space.
I also would like to know where I can buy a book version of the service manual no CD or PDF

Thanks,
Jim

Wel I used a 16mm deep socket (I think it was 16mm) If you dont have that you could use the spark plug wrench that came with your outlander just stick a screw driver through the holes to get more leverage

It's a pain , but the wrench in the factory tool kit works best .
You have to bend the plastic shroud for the air intake a little with your finger , but it does work .
