To replace them you need to remove the spark plug boot (the rubber end of the spark plug wire) by slightly turning it, to free it from the plug, left and right, then gently pulling it. Once you remove it insert the spark plug wrench socket over the plug and turn it counter clockwise. To install the new plugs make sure you check for proper gap. Then insert each plug hand tight, then turn with the socket and additional 1/8 turn to seat the plug. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN! Then reattach the spark plug wires.

Then the hose will come off. Use then the socket to tight it in place. Do this operation for the back side of the engine. The front is easy to install. Good luck
