Change spark plugs on a 2003 santa fe

That is what you have to do on a chrysler v-6, also-remove the intake manifold. Be sure and use a new gasket for the manifold. Also check if there is a holding bracket for the manifold on one side or the other, or both as on a chrysler.

How do you access the rear spark plugs on a 2004 Sante Fe 6cyl?

You have to remove the intake plenum to access the spark plugs. That's the piece that sticks up and completely covers the back side when looking from the front. If you have fairly average car repair skills, it isn't all that hard but does take a lot longer than a normal spark plug change-out. If you remove the plenum and do this job yourself, you MUST replace the intake plenum gasket or you will end up with a bad vacuum leak. I strongly recommend you refer to a maintenance manual if you attempt this procedure. There is a lot of stuff attached to the plenum that has to be removed.

I have a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe with the 6 cyl. engine. I wanted to change the spark plugs. I can get to the front ones easy enough, but the back ones appear to be under the intake manifold. How would I...

don't take the manifold off....... see if perhaps the window wiper dip tray will be enough room to access the rear not remove intake.

I need to replace spark plugs and wires on my santa fe v-6. Do i need to remove the intake manifold?

There may be an engine cover over the valve covers that is a big piece of plastic that may say Hyundai, or Santa Fe,

I believe its three or four 10mm retaining nuts that hold it on, take that engine cover off, and there should be 3 wires in the top of each valve cover, those big wires are the spark plug wires, and they actually connect to the spark plug which is down inside the cylinder.
To remove, you will need a 3/8 drive ratchet, a long extension, I would say 6-12 inches, long enough, but not too long, and a 5/8" spark plug socket.
Take one of the spark plug wires out, and put your long extension with the spark plug socket on it down into the hole that the big wire came out of and you should find a spark plug at the end of the tunnel.

Changing spark plugs - need to remove intake manifold and should change gaskets...which ones?

To change a spark plug. 1.Disconnect the wire attached to the spark plug it would be wise to do only one at a time! 2.Take a long socket that will fit the spark plug 3.Attach to the socket wrench and turn counter clockwise until off. 4. Put the new spark plug in and hand screw until tight then turn the socket wrench clockwise until completely tight usually 1 1/2 turns. 5.Then reconnect the spark plug wire. Easy as that. Repeat steps 3-5 for the rest and remember ONE PLUG WIRE AT A TIME!
