Good question for which I have no answer. Bought plugs for my wife's Accord V6 and then spent way too long just trying to find them under the hood. Looks like a spaceship under there compared to my old truck! This is actually pretty easy, assuming it's the same as my 01 Accord with distributorless ignition. The engine should be cold. There are (obviously) 3 spark plugs in the front cylinder head and 3 in the rear. You can't see them, as each plug is located under its own black squarish ignition coil, which has an electrical connector and an Allen-head bolt holding it to the cyl. head. Remove the front plastic engine cover by turning the plastic slotted toggles 1/4 turn to the left. For each spark plug, undo the wire connector from the coil. Remove the Allen head bolt. Twist & pull the coil & attached spark plug connector straight out. Now you can see the spark plug down inside the tube in the cyl. head. Remove it with a spark plug socket (5/8" I think) and extension. Check & set the new plug electrode gap per the owner's manual, apply some anti-seize compound to the threads, insert it down into the tube and screw in by hand using the socket/extension. Don't force it if it doesn't screw in easily!! When the plug is seated finger tight, snug it another 1/8 turn, or (preferably) tighten to 13 ft-lb with a torque wrench. Put a little silicone "tune-up" grease in the end of the spark plug connector and push the coil/connector onto the plug. Replace the Allen head bolt and reconnect the coil wire connector. Do the front plugs first so you can do the rears mostly by feel. Replace the plastic engine cover and you're done. It's about an hour job if you take your time.
