    Default Spark Plug panel screw snapped!!!

    So I was replacing my spark plugs on my 2003 CR-V this morning. Everything went well until the end.

    while I was screwing back the final screw... the long one that is attached to the spark plug cap... it snapped in half... I guess from overtightening it.

    Now the screw is free turning and the broken half is screwed into the spark plug rubber cap.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Get the "Screw out" from sears and take the screw out. Hopefully you did not damage the threads in the Aluminum head.

    I think the torque on those bolts is only 17 ft. lbs. in the shop manual. You got one of those, right?
