Steve,

Do you own a Bentley's manual?
If not, buy yourself one..it is a worthwile investment. The removal of individual coils is very easy. Remove the plastic cover. Then just undo the two nuts that hold each coil on the spark plug and lift the coil straight off. Before you lift, note where the coil lead goes and ensure that you fit them back properly into the grooves on the wire harness. Each coil has a 4" or so rubber tube on the bottom that attaches to the spark plug. You will find a bracket underneath the nuts on a couple of the coils that require a little "english' to get the coils off.

Easy job really.
