which plug do you have, one is a finger tight style that sticks out, the other is flush and uses a 6mm allen to remove, i believe both have the allen hole.

Some have tried JB weld ing the wrench to the plug. Some have had success, others have bought a new cover plate. Not much room in there.

If you have to get a new manifold plate, it isn't the same as a stock one for your 03. They eliminated the fuel heater.

6C3Z9B249A I think this is the right part#, please verify with your parts supplier.
