There are two possible answers. One with a distributor and one with the electronic distributorless ignition system. I'll put both here, starting with the distributor style first.

1) remove the negative cable from battery
2) remove the wires from the primary terminals on the coil (if there is only one, then remove that one)
3) unplug the secondary coil lead
4) remove the bolts and mounting bracket.
Do the same in reverse order to install new part
1) disconnect negative cable from battery
2) remove coil wires from each coil pack (Do NOT just grab and pull the wires off, use the locking tabs, push them in, twist and pull the wires off)
3) remove the bolts and bracket

When you replace the system or spark plug wires, using dielectric grease is a good idea.

On distributorless models, make sure you have the wires connected to the proper coil using the firing order as a reference. Firing order 1-3-7-2-6-5-4-8

Tip: Mark and label the wires so you do not mix them up

Why won't 89 cRown Vic stay running unless key held forward

Usually the problem is inside the lock switch. You should have power at the EEC relay and the coil with the switch in the on position.

How do you tune up a 1993 ford crown victoria

All you really have is the spark plugs and spark plug wires, I believe your car doesn't have a cap and rotor to replace, just coil packs, which really isn't something you replace when you do a tune up. I would also replace the fuel filter and check the air filter. Make sure you change 1 wire at a time, so they don't get put back on wrong.
