Here is what the manual says:"Spark Plug Removal 4.7L V-8

Each individual spark plug is located under each ignition coil. Each individual ignition coil must be removed to gain access to each spark plug. Refer to Ignition Coil Removal/Installation.

(1) Remove necessary air filter tubing at throttle body.

(2) Prior to removing ignition coil, spray compressed air around coil base at cylinder head.

(3) Prior to removing spark plug, spray compressed air into cylinder head opening. This will help prevent foreign material from entering combustion chamber.

(4) Remove spark plug from cylinder head using a quality socket with a rubber or foam insert. Also check condition of ignition coil o-ring and replace as necessary.

What it comes down to, is that you disconnect the coil trigger harness on top of each plug, remove each coil pack with a 10mm socket. The spark plug is beneath each coil. Use a spark plug socket to remove the spark plug. You may need an extension for the spark plug socket, since the plugs are fairly deep in there.Here is a video that will show you more. Different vehicle, same engine:) Hope this helps, good luck.
