    Got mums car coming for a service this week, mileage is 45000.
    Reading about it I was surprised to see it has 8 plugs, which in my mind should be changed about now.
    I will use blueprint filters but the plugs look to be well over £100 :eek:
    Are 1 set fancy iridium or both?
    Any advice or knowledge is appreciated.

    Yes, these are twin spark engines with 8 plugs and 8 coil packs.....one plug fires fractionally before the other to get a complete burn.
    I do believe the plugs are iridium but its well over a year since I worked on a Jazz and I certainly didn't pay anywhere near the ton.....go and visit a motor factor maybe? I don't recall one plug being different from the other.
    These are a great car to service and maintain, everything is nicely accessible. Look out for corroded rear discs and rotting exhaust shroud drivers side - they can fall and rattle on the exhaust pipe.
    If its an auto, the specification of the oil changed around 2012 - very much worthwhile changing if it hasn't been done.

    Thanks, will call in my local factors this week and enquire about the plugs.

    Turns out this particular model has the vtec engine which only has 4 plugs. Still a nightmare to change down the back of the engine and £16 each too!
    Nice car to service though, spark plugs required removal of windscreen wiper assembly and panels but not too bad a job.

    I did one of those 8 plug Jazzes about a year ago. I don't remember having to take the wiper motor off. Perhaps mine was a different model. It's quite common to have to take the inlet manifold off to change spark plugs these days though.

    The Jazz's I looked after were on an 07 and 09 plate.....no experience with the V tec I'm afraid!
    Very easy to service indeed.
