something like that. it's really easy, but i don't remember what the tool to remove them looks like. i know to put the new ones in, you use a big socket, and hammer...

just don't forget to drain the coolant, and fill it when you're done. made that mistake twice... i think i just jammed a screwdriver into the old plug and pried it out...
