Remove the air filter and remove the three 10mm bolts that fasten the filter box to the valve cover. This will reveal the 4 coil packs that cover the plugs. One doesn't need to remove the hoses from the air filter box to the intake, but rather push it to the driver's side. This will facilitate removal of even the plug nearest the driver's side fender.

Remove the coil pack wire connection from the coil by pressing down the grooved tab and wiggling whilst pulling.

Remove the 10mm bolt from each coil pack and wiggle-pull these out of the spark plug wells.

Remove the spark plugs with a 5/8 socket with an extension.

Replace plugs in the opposite order after coating the threads of the new spark plugs with anti-seize compound. Only use enough compound to coat the threads to avoid fouling the plug.

Replace the air box and filter. Done.
