Tips needed to remove the 1.9L plugs

The space is limited and there's sharp edge around. The boot is kinda tight. How do you protect your hand from being cut? Any tool make this work easier?

I just mash it

If you're talking about the far left plug next to the alternator you can get to it without plug boot pliers. You will need the extension and the swivel joint though.

I found it impossible to pull the left most plug without removing the alternator AC line also gets in the way! How did you guys do it?
