SOURCE: spark plug wires
Depending on the Motor. You should not have any Plug wires. You will have to remove the Top cover on the Motor and they should be Straight down from top on Either Side. (Plugs)

The plug change I already answered. hope that was enough...although a thought I just had was that some plugs have to be removed thru the wheel arches after removing the tire and inner protective shroud. I cant remember for your vehicle if thats one of the methods, you'll soon find out when u attempt removal of the old plugs.
BTW if you cant seem to get to one, do all the wires and other plugs and get a local mechanic to do the hard one. Dont be tempted to leave one crappy old plug in there you;ll undoubtedly get a large bite in the *** later on for that believe me. I aint done that but I have had to repair vehicles that had that old plug stuck in the rear of a V8 misfiring like hell.......
The coolant leak is not a big problem in the reservoir but if you can see it and/or get the reservoir off easily, I have fixed these a few times by drilling the leak hole round, then screwing in a self-tapping screw covered liberally in gasket ATV or regular silicone (bathroom mirror sealer) the reservoir need to be empty or below the leak line and dry so that the ATV/silicone will bond. A hot glue gun is also an ideal repair tool.
The problem with not repairing the leak is that the coolant pressure will not be right causing a change in the boiling point of the coolant, lowering the boiling point and reducing the cooling effectiveness of the coolant. This is a bit extreme for a small drip but under pressure that can turn out to be a real hisser....anyhow I probably overkilled this problem lol...hope u get it all done ok :)

If you are going to change your spark plugs, make sure you use platinum spark plugs over the regular ones. Here's why:
