You have to remove the battery at the least to get in there and believe it or not you go in from the top. The best way to do it is,

1.)find the proper size socket and put a short extension(one that has a flex joint) put that over the bolt holding the coil pack on the spark plug.

2.) then feed the socket wrench in to the tight space between the wheel well and the cylinder head (working it into the short extension and socket you just set on the bolt) so the socket wrench locks in, loosen it enough to be able to turn it by hand because you will run out of room quick. Romove the rest of the bolt by hand, pull the coil pack off the spark plug. Do that for both driver side cylinders.

3.)The spark plug sits deep in the head and again you will not be able to make the angle with the wrench attatched, so again find the proper size spark plug socket, feed that in to the tight space and work it in to the cylinder head and over the spark plug, then work the socket wrench in and lock it in to the socket. Remove the plugs.

Just be patient and take your time, it is not a 2min job like the passangers side, even though it looks impossible there is a way...

just pull the airpump out (with bracket) and replace it after you're done. It's a few screws, a hose clamp and a plug and it pulls right out.
