Are you kidding? lol. Easy as this. Open you driver door - Pull hood latch. Close door - Open hood. Remove engine covers - 4 Screws ( Dont loose them ) . Un-screw bolts around coil packs - 6 packs - 2 bolts per pack. Take socket wrench with spark plug puller and 10" extension. Pull out coil pack. Stick in socket. Your going to have to puch really hard to get it to release. Put your new ones in very lightly. Do all six. Go back with Torque wrench and tighten accordingly.

4 screws for the engine cover, you must be removing the whole thing, i only remove the one side good luck with the last plug, it's a little tricky lol
