The spark plugs go straight down through the center of the cam/valve cover. You must remove the plastic cover going down the center to get to the wires and plugs.
With that said, I do not recommend that you attempt to replace your plugs unless you have a source of compressed air. The removal procedure includes "cracking the plugs loose and turning approximately 3/4 turn. Then place a blow-gun with a long tube down inside the spark plug tube and blow out any debris that is in the tube before revoving the plugs the rest of the way. Failure to follow this procedure can cause debris to enter the combustion chamber when the plugs are removed and can cause serious engine damage.
