Your passenger side ignition coil is right here on the front of the engine, on the passenger side. The best way to do this is to start by holding your new ignition coil in its place and pulling the wires off one at a time, so that you don't get them mixed up. All right, there's one. There's two. There's three, and the last one. Make sure they're fully snapped on. With those on the coil, you can set it aside.

Now you're going to want to remove the plastic electrical connector from the side of it. You can do that with your flat tip screwdriver. If you slide it in the upper and lower tabs, it allows you to pull the connector off, just like that. The ignition coil has four bolts holding it to the engine itself. They're seven millimeters. There's two on the top, and then on the bottom. You can't see them, but they're on the opposite corners. We're going to start with the bottom ones, because they're the most difficult. Use your 7mm socket with an extension. With all four bolts loose, you should be able to hopefully just pop this off from the bracket. Nope, one of them's not quite there. There we go. On the bottom front corner, there's actually another little device hanging off the screw, so you have to pull the screw completely out.

At this point, you can take your new coil, and put the screws into the new coil. Remember the bottom front one is a special one. We'll put it right in place, and then start off by hand tightening all of the screws, because you don't want to cross-thread them. That'll make for a very bad day. Now you can use your 7mm ratchet to get on the bolts. I like to start with the bottom, because I do all the most difficult stuff first. The last part of the process is to snap the connector back onto the coil, just like that.
