    Question help please! on 1.8 vvt 06 engine - plugs

    just servicing my car, oil draining as I type! got a set of plugs but cant see where to start.
    There is a plastic strip with the ECO writing on it with two bolts holding another strip underneath, is that where they are hiding?, or there is a Metal bar behind the plastic carbunkle, also held on by two torx bolts, which has a lit of gubbins in the way and connectors on it ?
    HELP PLEASE I would like to finisgh the job!

    its hard to descibe but you remove all you see on the top of the engine were the plugs are untill you get to the coil pack which goes on all 4 plugs(its 1 complete unit) undo and lift up carefully then you get to the plugs

    hope this helps

    thats just it I dont realy know where they are! looks as though the bar holds the coil pack which disaperas under a plastic strip which looks as though it has loads of little clips holding it on, dont want to risk snapping any off if no need?

    Not done this myself yet but from what i have figured out, Is it not a matter of slidding off the engne cover? Looking at the top of the engine, their is a indented line that runs from a bout a tird of the way down on the right to two thirds of the way down in a u shape going left. I think this cover slides off to the right and the plugs are under their.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Trouble is there are two covers in the big plastic carbunkle, the top one near the bar that covers the coil pack, has loads of little plastic clips all the way around, and I dont want to break any if theres no need, the second one with the words ecotec on it comes off to reveal two long torx bolt which probably hold the whole carbunkle on, so dont think it all needs to come...........
