    One per cylinder...you'll need to remove the coilpack to see and change/remove the plugs. Coilpack should be under the engine cover.

    5 male torx bolts that hold in place a rectangular shaped black thing on top of your engine (under the engine cover, obviously!). all are really easy to access, once removed just wiggle and lift the coil pack out (the black thing you just unbolted, about 40cm long and 10cm wide!) then hey presto, your 4 spark plugs are in the holes the coil pack came out of. pretty sure it's a 16mm socket for the sparkies hth
