How do I change my spark plugs on my 97 Toyota Tercel?

I need to change my plugs. Where are they located? Please tell me what I need to do and what size plugs I need. I have a 97 Toyota Tercel CE. Thanks for the replies.

Pretty easy to do. Tools you'll need: 3/8" ratchet, 12" extension, 5/8" spark plug socket, 10mm wrench or socket, anti-seize for the new plugs. To get started, unplug the wire harness from the ignition coils. Just squeeze the tab and pull. Remove the spark plug wires from cylinder 1 and 2. One 10mm bolt holds each of the igniton coils in place. Remove and pull/wiggle the coil till it comes out. Move the coils/wires aside. Remove old spark plugs. Coat the threads of new plugs with anti-seize. Install new plugs and tighten 12-18 ft lbs. Reassemble and go!~ Plug numbers below. Stick to DGE(dual ground electrode) plugs for best performance. See pic below.
