Going by the diagram on the handle that is only designed to unscrew.

The impacta I have looks like a regular screwdriver.  See pic below.

I thought it only 'unscrews' but I could be wrong.  Any instructions on the back of the pack are in japanese!

A gallon of petrol was 4/4d when I started driving back in 1964. About 22p or 0.048/ litre, if my arithmetic is correct.

By chance found this interesting site for us oldies.
I've managed in the past with the vessel impacta, on one occasion I even gave up with it, tried drilling them out, snapping drill bits, going back to the impact driver and succeeding, I did have to use ridiculous force but it always came off in the end.
The impact driver should have tighten and loosen if it's the same one I have, put it on the screw and put pressure on it, turning it clockwise to tighten, anti-clockwise to loosen and keep the pressure on as you strike it with the hammer.I
I found tighten/loosen helped free them, the key seemed to be brute force though.
I then tried a variation of Sparky Paul's suggestion which I'd seen on Youtube.

If anyone decides to look at that, I don't advise copying the bloke in the video. Hammers have hardened faces, and hitting one with another can cause them to chip - and the slivers of metal that shoot off can do some real eye damage.

Looks like the entire front wiper assembly needs to go, great!

Only on MK2 ( 2008 --> 2015 ) with VTEC do you need to get a scuttle plate out of the way,  the VTEC engine only has 4 plugs but they are at the rear of the engine - good job you only need to do it every 70K miles ( iridium are fitted as OEM on MK2--> ).  I just undid the 3 bolts holding wiper motor and slid scuttle plate out when I did our MK2 plugs.

I've taken off 1 plug from the front, it looks ok - twisted off counter clockwise..

How on earth are the rears held, which direction to take off.. stupid question I know. I can't seem to budge them and there is hardly any room to move a ratchet. I am thinking the ones in the rear are at fault

All the spark plugs are normal RH thread,  so undo counter-clockwise.  The coil packs just pull straight out after retaining screw is removed,  getting rear coil packs out is easier if you pull the loom off its clips.  If you do get plugs to start unscrewing and they are still tight on the thread try some penetrating oil down plug recess and for every bit you screw them out screw them back in a little until they loosen up ( like 2 steps forward and 1 step back ).

Get the engine hot before trying to take rear plugs out,  the aluminium of the cylinder head expands more than the steel of the plug and will allow thread to move more easily,  the steel wall of the plug is very thin where the hexagon joints the thread and they will snap off if too much torque is used ( then your problems are only just beginning ).  If the plugs have been in a long time the normal passivated zinc coating will try to stick to aluminium, long life Iridium plugs have a special coating ( NGK call it tri-valent ) to prevent sticking because the plugs are gonna be in place for 70,000 miles.

Been taking advantage of the new rules garages are adopting on new car test drives. Am thinking of changing the Jazz, so thought i'd try a few i thought might be OK. Had a go in a Q2 1.5...felt claustrophobic, tried the New Seat leon, goes like the clappers, but came away thinking, 'well. not really' Tried a Golf GTi, was quite impressed with everything, but thought after, i'd dread leaving it anywhere.
Conclusion:The 1.5 Turbo engines are fantastic, and great MPG..........But i just can't commit, so will probably do nothing!!!!

However, its great not having the salesman next to you.
Until a couple of weeks ago we had a brace of excellent Jazz's, my self-owned 2099 EX I-shift with 81,000 on the clock (bought four years ago) and my wife's 2017 leased EX-Navi CVT with 42,000 miles recorded. When, last autumn, it was time for my wife's example to be replaced we decided on a new Toyota Corolla self-charging Hybrid for delivery on 1 March. Coronavirus meant that this was postponed and it finally arrived on 29 June. And so good. It's the 1.8 CVT and is a lovely car to drive, loaded with gizmos and looks like it'll average around 60mpg. If we were doing it now, we'd look at the Jazz hybrid but I may look at replacing my car during the coming year and that'll be an option, as will be the Hyundai Ionic Premium self-charging Hybrid which I have driven   and loved.
