Spark Plug Sockets
If you're changing spark plugs on any of the following BMWs listed (below), you should consider adding this tool to your toolbox, as it makes getting the spark plug threaded into the head much easier and safer. We also highly recommend the special thin walled spark plug socket, part#83300495560, as well as a either a torque wrench or the BMW torque adapter tool (part# 83300491130) to apply the proper torque to each spark plug (23nm or 17 lb-ft).

When it comes to replacing the spark plugs on a N54 or N55 engine you may have already noticed the standard small spark plug socket is a bit to big. This socket is a more affordable option for your weekend tune-up.

- MINI Gen 2 (R55, R56, R57 & R60+) Models
- 14mm 12-point socket
- 3.5" long socket
- Internal magnet to retain the spark plug

Don't attempt an N54/N55 spark plug replacement with a conventional spark plug socket!
The Schwaben Extended Reach Spark Plug Socket is the perfect tool for removing 5/8-inch spark plugs with deeply recessed plugs.
The five inch long, rigid socket body provides solid engagement with the plug hex to prevent plug breakage.
- Magnetic ring holds the spark plug but won't stick to the plug porcelain neck like sockets with cheap rubber inserts
- Chrome plated with durable and attractive polished surface
- Turn it with a 3/8-inch ratchet or a 19 mm (¾-inch) socket or box wrench at the external hex head
- Outer diameter of socket is approximately 22mm
If you're changing the original set of spark plugs on any of the following BMWs listed (below), you will most likely need this socket (if in doubt, please check your existing plugs, to avoid restocking fees on returned tools). This socket also has internal guides, which help keep the spark plug aligned with the socket, making the job easier. We also recommend the spark plug installer, part#83300496065, which allows you to guide the spark plug down the into the head of the engine, as well as a either a torque wrench or the BMW torque adapter tool (part# 83300491130) to apply the proper torque to each spark plug (23nm or 17 lb-ft).
