You have to remove upper intake manifold to gain enough access to remove coils. The instructions to replace the ignition coils are in the diagrams below

Tighten the ignition coil bolt(s) to 10 N.M (89 lb in).

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

I have a 2003 cadillac cts, upon researching the part I noticed there was a right and left part. Do I need to replace both of them? Codes indicates I need an ignition coil. Upon researching the part I noticed there was a right and left part. Do I need to replace both of them?

Left side of motor and right side of motor. The ones on the drivers side are different than the ones on the passenger side.

A code never identifies a bad part just a failed system. I would have the car checked before guessing at parts needed.
