You should certainly _look_ at them. I'm confused by these comments about
special plug tools - I use a standard Britool plug socket and it's fitted every
car I've ever owned.

There's an Audi service tool - a 180 degree screwdriver ...
Most people mucking around down there take the front right headlight out. Then
it's easier to do a whole lot of things, including swap the air filter with the
hose attached. The clamp was probably tightened from down there, anyway.
