They have tools you can buy to help you remove the wire's a plier type and I have seen a hook type also. As far as getting to the plug's I use a wobble type spark plug socket or wobble attachment's with extension's. Sometimes you have to get to them from underneath the car is easier.

The best part of it you will get to keep the new tools you buy unlike if you took it somewhere.
