SOURCE: Mazda RX8 starting problem
Check that your battery is fully charged. If it does not sustain a charge , replace it. Clean the cables and battery posts with baking soda and water mixture. About 1/4 cup to a pint. If it still does not turn with a fully chared battery, it is probably the starter that is bad. It will have to be replaced. One click usually means the starter is bad. Several clicks usually means the battery is bad.

Jack the drivers side up and secure on jack stands. Remove the drivers side front wheel. You can then reach through the fender well to remove and reinstall the spark plugs.

In all seriousness, remove the rightside (from the front) road-wheel (jack the car, of course) - drivers front wheel in a LHD car, passenger's in a RHD car.
At the back of the wheel arch is a flexible flap - unclip / move / remove this, and you have good access to the plugs (remember, these are mounted on the side of the engine on a RX8 / Renesis rotary engine).
13/16" socket to remove the spark plugs; There's 4, in total, in 2 pairs (yes, 2 different types of plugs).
Smear a little anti-seize on the threads of the new plugs and insert by hand and tighten in accordance with the instructions on the plugs (e.g. NKG = hand-tighten, then spanner 1/2 turn)
