unplug old leads put on new ones

remove airbox & intake pipes.
replace them one at a time, old one out new one in until they're all replaced. you gonna rely on hand & brain coordination replacing them, eyes won't be much help.

If you know the firing sequence from the coil pack then pull all of them out.

best to do it in the morning or at least 4 to 5 hours of cooling down. 3 hours isn't enough as I found last Sunday. the heater pipe has a bit of sting if rest your hand on it while feeling around. #*&@
