Here are a few photos showing how I access two of the SSR's spark plugs with the tightest access, Numbers 2 and 4 on the right front side of the engine (one ahead of the oil dipstick, one behind).

The first step is to temporarily reposition the coolant overflow tank by removing the tie wrap supporting the two heater hoses, unscrewing one sheet metal screw at the front with a 10mm socket, unclipping the tank from its side bracket and swinging it forward into a vertical position out of the way. You do not need to drain the tank or disconnect the fluid lines to the tank.

The spark plugs can then be removed using a long bent handle flex head 3/8 inch ratchet, a similar straight handle flex head ratchet, a standard depth ¾ inch hex socket and a 5/8 inch spark plug socket with a ¾ inch hex end.

great pics. Changed my plugs when I added headers and did the heads last year so that tank was out of the way for me. Good to know how without removing everything.
