     You can begin the repair by opening the hood of your car. It is better to disconnect the negative cable from the battery, because you will have to remove the ignition coils and this way you avoid unwanted electrical accidents. After you do it, detach the engine cover. You can do it using only your bare hands because you just have to pull up firmly from the edges and it will come out. Be advised, because on the right side of the engine cover there is a small hose that you must unplug before removing the cover (see picture below). Be careful, not to damage it.
