2005 kia amanti: back 3 spark plugs and wires..coils..intake manifold

This answer was rated:

How do I change the back 3 spark plugs and wires on a 2005 kia amanti?  I've changed the front 3 and coils but not sure what to remove to gain excess to the back 3 plugs and wires. Do you have an exploded view picture of the intake manifold?

Scott :

Hello, I am Scott and I will assist you with your vehicle concern.

Scott :

As you can see by the picture, you will need to remove the upper plenum chamber {the part the curves over the rear head} This will gain you access to the coils and plugs.
