I havn't found no coil or spark plugs wires on this car the only thing I found is something like a spark plugs boots and spark plugs under a cover on top of the engine and the little coil pack mount to the cover.

By the coil pack if this is a 2.4L then under the coil cover. If not then by the coils themselves I can be of no further assistance on this.
