96 taurus lx spark plugs??

Can anyone give me a step by step instruction on how to change the spark plugs. I can very easily get to the 3 plugs in the front and one of them on the back but the other two?!? I reached behind the intake and can feel the tops of the boots on all three but #1 is impossible. By the looks of it I'll need to take of the intake and several hoses and the coil pack as well?!? Is there an easier way. I can only touch the top of the boot on #1 and can't even pull the boot off. The boots look like they are about 9" long so I know I'll need an extention and a deepwell socket. I'm confused, please help!! Swizzle

yes, most people need to remove the intake manifold or the windshield cowl to get to those plugs. Some people claim they can change those plugs without doing so, but I think they're crazy.

Remove the intake to make life easier. It's not too bad to do.
