You would have to remove the engine cover to get at them.

Removal (Left Side)

1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Remove engine cover from the dowels on the common chamber.

2. Disconnect positive crankcase ventilation hose. Remove ground cable fixing bolt on cylinder head cover.

3. Disconnect the three connectors from the ignition coils. Remove harness bracket bolt on cylinder head cover.

4. Remove fixing bolts on ignition coils. Disconnect fuel injector harness connector then remove fuel injector harness bracket bolt.

5. Remove eight fixing bolts, then the cylinder head cover.

Installation (Left Side)

1. Install cylinder head cover.

• Clean the sealing surface of cylinder head and cylinder head cover to remove oil and sealing materials completely.
• Apply sealant (TB-1207B or equivalent) of bead diameter 2-3 mm at eight place of arched area of camshaft bracket on front and rear sides.
• The cylinder head cover must be installed within 5 minutes after sealant application to prevent premature hardening of sealant.
• Tighten bolts to 80 INCH lbs. (9 N.M).

2. Install fuel injection harness bracket and tighten bolt to 80 INCH lbs. (9 N.M).

3. Connect ignition coil connector and ignition coil, then tighten bolt to 35 INCH lbs. (4 N.M).

CAUTION: Ignition coil No. 6 is shorter than ignition coils No. 1-5.

4. Connect ground cable and tighten bolts to 80 INCH lbs. (9 N.M).

5. Install positive crankcase ventilation hose. Install engine cover mating with the dowels.

Removal (Right Side)

1. Disconnect battery ground cable. Remove engine cover from the dowels on the common chamber. Disconnect ventilation hose from cylinder head cover.

2. Disconnect 3 ignition coil connectors from ignition coils and remove harness bracket bolts on cylinder head cover, then remove ignition coil fixing bolts on ignition coils and remove ignition coils.

3. Disconnect fuel injector harness connector, then remove fuel injector harness bracket bolt. Remove 8 fixing bolts then the cylinder head cover.

Installation (Right Side)

1. Install cylinder head cover.

• Clean the sealing surface of cylinder head and cylinder head cover to remove oil and sealing materials completely.
• Apply sealant (TB-1207B or equivalent) of bead diameter 2-3 mm at eight place of arched area of camshaft bracket on front and rear sides.
• The cylinder head cover must be installed within 5 minutes after sealant application to prevent premature hardening of sealant.
• Tighten bolts to 80 INCH lbs. (9 N.M).

Tighten fuel injector harness bracket bolts to 69 INCH lbs. (7.8 N.M), then reconnect fuel injector harness connector.

3. Connect ignition coil connector and ignition coil, then tighten bolt to 35 INCH lbs. (4 N.M).

4. Connect ventilation hose to cylinder head. Install engine cover mating with the dowels.
