Unhappy Spark plugs problems

My number 5 plug is misfiring, I have tried to replace it but the shroud is damaged and I can't get a socket on the plug. the brake booster is so close I don't even have a line of sight to see what the problem is, Does anyone have a solution?

when a cylinder is misfiring its not usually the plug its usually something firing the plug so maybe try checking the wire or the cap and rotor or check to see if the plug is wet with gas or oil. if there is liquids in the cylinder you could have a leaking head gasket or consuming oil. could be a number of things, but usually never the plug.

Talking Plug

Get a little inspection mirror and use that and a flashlight to see what's stuck in the plug area.
