Default spark plug and wire removal

What is the best way to remove the wires in an easy way. I can hardly see the cap way in the back. Also, any tricks to removing the spark plugs on the driver's side next to the brake booster?

I usually worked on GM but the best way to change your plugwires would be to do them one at a time. as far as the driver side back set, I found a little bit of space from the underside of the old chevys I used to play with. Good luck

Default Plugs

OK so i spent today changing my plugs. Sounds like work but makes the job easy. Take off the tire and plastic housing under fender. Get a stool and sit there and work. Can get at all of them!!

I'm 5'4" or so, I just laid over the radiator. I WILL say to make sure you do the wires one at a time and make sure the wire routing is the way it was. I did not route my wires the way they came from the factory and had a miss. I looked up the factory wiring, routed accordingly, and the miss stopped.
