Get yourself a 10mm offset wrench. Newegg sells one for $1.50 with free shipping. Once the rear bolts are lose, you can remove them by hand but be careful not to let them drop behind the engine. Trust me that's not good.


Btw, you can also remove the spark plug cover with a flexible extension. Each spark plug has a solid state ignition module on top. Unplug the module from the connector by first pushing back a little red hold-down and then use a small screw driver to lift a second black hold-down that secures the connector to the module. After removing the connector, gently wedge up the ignition module (that connects to the spark plug) and turn it 1/4 of a circle to remove it from under the air manifold. Carefully place the ignition module in a safe place where it won't fall while you replace the spark plug. Look for my YouTube video.
