There are 8 plugs in the V8, 4 on each side. Over each plug is a coil that easily pulls off of each spark plug, hence 8 coils. There are two covers--one over each set of 4 coils and plugs.
The front cover has a metal tag on it that reads, "InTake 32 Valve V8". It has two 10 milometer hex screws holding it on. The back cover is the same shape as the front, but is up closer to the window. You will need just the right socket extension to get the back 4 plugs out. Good luck.

On the top of the Huge valve cover gaskets. There is a strip which is separate from the cover. There is a few small bolts holding it on. Remove those screws then the strip will come off. That is what the plugs are plugged into. And it shouold pull off of one whole side. Then you should be able to get to the plugs.

    The coil pack is mounted on top of the valve covers. No spark plug wires.

SOURCE: How do I change the spark plugs

You have to take the engine cover off, and then you should see the spark plugs on both sides of the engine. If you can't seem to find them, just follow the wires from the coil or distributor.

pop the trunk and right behind where the lights are pull the carpet down and their will be of the following depending on the trim.

You will either see the light sockets themselves that you can twist and pull to change the bulb, or you will see the plastic nuts/screws that you can remove to remove the entire assembly in order to access the bulbs.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the screws to access the housing are located in the upper part of the trunk
