Solving rough running + disassemble

The car has been running rough, runs good cold but when it gets warm one cylinder has been misfiring, I knew from reading codes it was cylinder 5 and I suspected the ignition coil, they usually break.

Ordered 2 used ignition coils to have a spare if I run into more broken ones.

Was going to drive the car for 350 km to the garage, so replaced the coil and off I went, didn’t get far until Check engine light came on. I had also bought new sparkplugs for service, so at a petrolstation outside Gävle I replaced the sparkplug, Check engine light gone and it runs perfect:

Next day I replaced the rest of the sparkplugs + airfilters and cabinfilter:


Washed it:



And started taking it apart to fix the cosmetics:


Fender comes off:


Got all the broken plastic off from the underside, hotwater cleaned it:
