Those boxes you speak of are ignition coils. Each one feeds two cylinders, that is why they put the coil directly over the plugs on one side so that only one wire is needed for every 2 cylinders.
The spark plug wire is removed from the plug by firmly grasping the flat cap, and twisting while pulling on it, and it should pop off without a great deal of effort. If the metal clip tears out from within the spark plug boot, you will need to replace the wires.
The ignition coils will likely be held on with a couple of 10mm bolts.
You will need a 14mm spark-plug socket, and a ratchet & extension to remove the plugs. When re-installing the new plugs, coat the threads very lightly with a dab of anti-seize lubricant. Thread the plugs in by hand using the socket and extension, and then tighten snugly, but don't overdo it because the cylinder head is aluminum and you will strip the damn thing out! Hope this helps.
