Default Spark plug replacment

This might sound kind of dumb or mechanicaly impaired but how do you change the 2 center plugs on the engine? or how do you get to them to replace the plugs and wire im sure you have to somehow unbolt the intake? to get too it? and as easialy as possiable?

you are going to have to remove the throttle body to get to them. its not hard...about 10 bolts and a few vacuum line and hoses. takes maybe an hour the first time you do it.

there are the four(in my case three) brackets holding the throttle body to the engine. and then i took off the air intake connector, the y shaped tube that connects the throttle body to the intake manifold, which is held on by 6 more bolts. i realize i am using the term bolts for bolts and nuts, i should have been clearer at first but i wasnt thinking. i believe all the bolts and nuts can be removed with a 12mm socket
