    Remove engine cover. There are 4 bolts. Two 5mm Hex bolts and 2 10 mm bolts. You may not need to remove the bolts marked with the "Red Arrow" you could just slide the cover, but for me was easier just taking the bolt out.

    Remove the air filter box cover and attached hoses. First loosen the clamp by the throttle body. Then Remove the vent hose and unclip the air filter box cover. Then Disconnect the air flow meter connector and remove the air filter box cover with hoses

    Change front spark plugs. With the cover out, you could start by changing the front spark plugs. This step is simple, just remove the 10 mm bolts (Yellow Arrows), then disconnect the coils connectors (Green Arrows) by pressing the tab (Red Arrow) on the connectors and pull out the coils. Once the coils are out you just change the spark plugs and install back the coils, bolts and connectors.

    Remove 12 mm bolt from behind plenum. This is probably the hardest step. Using a 12 mm wrench or small ratchet and socket, remove the bolt that is attaching the power steering hose bracket to the intake plenum. Here is a picture with the bolt removed

  • At this point you could try to just lift the plenum and try to change the spark plugs without removing the plenum, but I decided to remove the plenum, since there are just 2 hoses left to remove the plenum I would do that.

    Remove Throttle Body Hoses and Connector. You could either remove the throttle body bolts or disconnect the two coolant hoses (Yellow Arrows), disconnect the connector (Red Arrow) and remove clips (Orange Arrow)

  • With all that disconnected you should be able to just pull out the plenum and have plenty of access to the back ignition coils and spark plugs. I also like to cover the intake with tape or rags to prevent bolts or tools going into the engine.
