     In the beginning, open the hood of your car and unplug the negative cable from the battery. This way you will prevent errors on the computer, shortcuts or any type of electrical damage on the car. Then, locate the four ignition coils on the engine and remove their harnesses by pressing the safety tabs marked with red arrows in the next picture. After you do it, unscrew the 10 mm bolts that hold the ignition coils (coloured in blue in the next image). If you find it easier, you can remove the two bolts that hold the wiring cover above the coils (see the yellow arrows below).
