Hello All
I have just replaced the plugs on my 147 2.0TS, and only after did I think about the Gaps, the larger twin electrode plug i assume does not require gapping, but what about the smaller diameter plug any advice would be handy. I would really like to get a proper paper copy of the repair manual if anybody knows where they can be obtained that would also be appreciated.
Thanks

Yep that was my understanding, its pre set at the factory. I used platinum tipped NGK's when replacing mine, I'm sure it said on the box all 8 were pre set. Trying to tap them to adjust the gap could lead to the platinum tip being damaged = possible engine probs!!!!!
