replacing rear spark plugs

Hello

I replaced my front three spark plugs easily. I am not mechanically inclined to reach the rear three. My mechanic won't replace the rear ones because he doesn't want to pull half the car apart. Can you help? I live in Rhode Island by the way and work in Bristol. Thank you

2003 RX300

so what would you like us to do, exactly? Do you want instructions to do it yourself? Do you want a mechanic referral?

Shame your mechanic into it.

Ask him why a girl can change those rear plugs on a 1MZ-FE engine without removing the intake and he can't?

Send him this video link:

You need to find a mechanic who is willing to do the job. Yes, it is difficult and will be expensive but it's also a common job that most mechanics would be able to do. Most modern transverse V6 engines require removal of the intake manifold to replace the rear plugs.

Not wanting to replace the 3 rear spark plugs on a Toyota/Lexus product?  What kind of a mechanic is he?!  There are far more complicated jobs than that.
