There is a helpful post in this section (and the Vitara section) on changing plugs in the M16A Engine.  I have a 1.0 3 pot S Cross (K10C engine) and the Handbook gives details of how to change plugs in the 1.4 but then says for the 1.0 special tools are required and take it to the dealer.  My need to change is some way off as it has only done 13k but I was intrigued (and want to be prepared).  What is so different about the 1.0 engine and what 'special tools' are required?  It would be great if a write-up could be produced for this.

I'm curious too. Says special tool even for the air filter? Not much on YouTube either.

I guess 'm10c' is a typo, should be K10c.
No special tools required for spark plug or air filter replacement, just a 10mm socket and a plug socket.Spark Plug Replacement K10C Engine Screen31

Apologies, corrected the title now to K10C for future reference (had M on my mind for some reason).

Thanks for the diagrams, looks quite similar to the 1.4 with one less coil etc. Not sure why they should say it needs 'special tools' and should be done by the dealer.

Simple economics and normal practice, the dealer needs the business
