You'll have to rotate the engine forward.Remove the air cleaner duct and accelerator cable.Place transmission in neutral(Block rear wheels). Remove the two bolts and detach driver's side torque strut(front engine mounts) .remove one bolt from radiator side of the passenger side torque strut. Use a ratchering strap attach to radiator support and engine lifting eye,rotate engine forward. remove coil pack to ease access to spark plugs. Good luck!!

How do I change spark plugs


The easiest way is to remove the wiper module, remove the upper front engine mount struts and use a ratcheting tie-down strap to pull with and rotate the engine forward so you have room to reach over the top of the engine.
You are now gaining an understanding of why a professional shop wants about 2-1/2 hours of labor time to screw in 6 little spark plugs. Most people do no have a clue...they just fuss about the price! After all...ANYBODY can unscrew a spark plug!!! :-)
