Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am trying to replace the spark plug wires on a 2005 Kia Sorento, but I can't get to them on the back side of the engine. Is there a trick to getting to them? What do I need to remove in order to reach them?

Easiest way to gain access would be to removed the upper intake.

I had to do this myself. The upper intake has to come off. Also when doing this. Check all the seals on your valve covers. They tend to leak right around the time the spark plugs need replacing. You may want to replace them anyway, because there going to leak later if you don't do it.
