On many vehicles spark plug are hard to see and get to because of a variety of reasons/accessories. Oftentimes mechanics have to see with the tips of their fingers and use swivel sockets to effect the change. On the transverse mounted V6 engine installed in the Pontiac Fiero of the 1980's, the engine actually had to be lowered a few inches to get the plugs out on one side of the engine. You will not have that problem.

its not hard, all i needed was a ratchet and the appropriate deep well/ spark plug socket

what I ended up doing was, removing the hose that went from the back of the manifold to the EGR valve? and a nut holding tubes and the valve ( not sure of the mane but it is part of the pollution control BS) that way I could see plugs 1,2,3,4. still a lot of work by feel. 210,000 on the odometer and the plug wires still had the numbers on them (original??) hard to get off.
