Best Answer

On top of the valve cover there are a few 10mm bolts. They are in the center part that is kind of grey/silver colored. Remove those and you will see the spark plug wires going straight down into the top of the cylinders. I recommend replacing the wires at the same time as the plugs because they probably will need it and sometimes it is hard to remove the wires without breaking them. So you don't get the order mixed up, I would pull off one wire at a time. You will need a spark plug socket and about a 6-8

inch extension to reach the plugs. Simply unscrew the plug as you would a bolt. When installing the new plug check the gap (the setting for the gap is listed on a sticker under the hood 0.45 or something like that) When installing the new plug put some anti-seize compound on the threads and dielectric grease on the connections. Install the new wire and repeat the process until all four plugs/wires are on. Route the wires exactly as they were before and the grey cover will fit right back in place and bolt back on. As a safety precaution it is a good idea to disconnect the battery before you get started.
