IS THERE A SIMPLE WAY OF CHANGING THE BACK THREE SPARK PLUGS?

I'm no mechanic but my 91 year old GrandPa thinks I am and has insisted I change his spark plugs. The front three were a breeze, not an easy breeze but a little air flow. Two hours have elapsed and I cannot remove the ones from the back. Heck, I can barely find the wretched things. Is there any hope? He loves his car but I'm ready to torch the old bucket. Thanks>

No simple way you reach over coil and have at them a swivel and extension will help

You can remove the coil pack, just mark the wires and plugs.

Remove the front engine stabilizer. Found on top. Have some one help you rock the motor away from the firewall, block it safely so it don't slip back, now you got more hand room
