Do I take the windshield wiper arms off to Access Back Plugs

Hi I have a 2000 Ford Taurus 3liter V-6 OHV the easy engine.

I have changed the front 3 spark plugs and wires on engine but I need to know if I have to take the windshield wiper arms so that I can get the right front cowl and the piece underneath it to access the back plugs. Right front cowl is molded around the wipers and I don't know how to get it off to access.

Thanks for any help.
Cordially,
Schleprock

No, just remove the cowling clips and loosen the cowling so you can get your hands back there. Do that and use a wobble at the end of your socket and you'll be fine.

RickMN thank you for replying. I took the cowl and the underneath piece and like you said had an easier access. Tune up done. Again thanks.
