Hi,

I attached a pic of cylinder location (pic 1). The arrow points towards the front of the engine (away from the transmission).

Here are the directions for replacing an ignition coil pack. The remaining pics correlate with the directions.

Removal and Installation

RH side

NOTE: Removal steps in this procedure may contain installation details.

1. NOTE: The upper intake manifold must be removed to access the RH ignition coil-on-plugs.
Remove the upper intake manifold. For additional information, refer to Engine.

Both sides

2. NOTE: When removing the ignition coil-on-plugs, a slight twisting motion will break the seal and ease removal.
NOTE: Before installing the ignition coil-on-plug apply a small amount of dielectric grease to the inside of the ignition coil-on-plug boots.

- Tighten to 7 Nm (62 lb-in).

3. Inspect the ignition coil-on-plug rubber seals and boots for cracks, rips, or tears. Replace any damaged coil-on-plug rubber seals or boots.

4. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

Hi,

Not a problem. It is still the same. The arrow points toward the front of the engine regardless of how it's positioned in the vehicle. The front of the engine will be where the belt driven accessories are and the rear will attach to the transmission.

I attached a pic for you. Please excuse the second grade writing. I'm doing it with the mouse on my computer. LOL

Let me know if that helps. If you are still confused, open the hood of your car and take a picture of the engine. Upload that and I will copy it and circle number 6 for you. It's honestly not a problem at all.

Take care,
Joe
