Take the cover off the engine(4 screws). Take the 8 coil packs off. Spark plugs are located under those. Be careful with the coil packs! Can be a squeez to get them out.

I think they have a clip on the top, then you just pull. Dont do this when the engine is hot. Burnt myself like an idiot. Try not the bend the coil pack if possible. Alittle is ok but you dont want it to crack. GL with the back right one Or maybe its the back left...
