the spark plugs are recessed in cylinder head,easyiest way to do remove air filter box on passanger side,remove spark plug wires give a twist then pull use 5/8 socket a3/8 swivel and a 12 inch externsion along with 3/8 rachet theses are tools of the trade, the extensions may not be avaible to you but these tools take the bending over and frustration out of the job, the plugs on the drivers side are easier nothing to remove but the wires good luck

Subaru Forester Spark plug removal:
First, you must remove the air cleaner housing
Move the tube from the air cleaner and the intake on top of the engine by loosening the hose clamps at each end. It is still attached to a hose underneath but can be put out of the way
Remove the top of the air cleaner and the filter.
Remove the two 12mm bolts at each side of the bottom.
The side of the bottom is rubber gasketed to the inside fender - just rotate slightly each way to loosen and pull off and put off to the side - there is still a wire attached.
Now pull off the spark plug caps on the side of the engine. This is a boxer engine which means the plugs are in a horizontal position on the sides. It is good to have a pair of spark plug pliers to do this as they are really difficult to remove. (spark plug pliers form a circle on the end when closed and are nice to grasp the caps with). Now you will need a 3/8 drive socket wrench, a 2" extension and a 5/8 deep socket Connect the extension and socket and feed it into the spark plug hole and over the spark plug. It is really deep inside. Now attach the wrench and remove the spark plug making sure you keep the tools level so as not to torque the plug side ways. Once the plug is real loose, unattach the wrench and hand loosen the plug with the extension because the wrench won't fit to remove the extension and socket attached. Remove the extension and socket and then spark plug. Put in the new plug reversing the steps.
