Default Step by step directions for changing spark plugs in 99 Accord???

Can anyone provide a link to directions for changing spark plugs for my 99 Accord EX 4 cyl? Diagrams/pics would be nice as well. I am not very mechanically inclined, but have heard that these are relatively easy to do. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you don't know how to change a spark plug, ask a friend..... I would go to autozone and pick up a Haynes Repair manual for your car. It has basic simple instructions.

This is for a 4cyl.
Remove the sparkplug wire from the valve cover. Do this 1 by 1 as you might confuse them. Don't pull it out from the wire, grip the boot.
Now take your spark plug socket with an extension attached to it, and put it down the hole. make the socket is over the spark plug. Now with your rachet, lefty loosey.
Unscrew until you feel that it is unscrewed, now pull it out. The spark plug should be attached to the socket.
Now take your new spark plug and gap it. Ask the store on how to do that. The gap i believe is .44
now put the spark plug into the socket
Then without the rachet, put it back into the tube. and screw it in by hand never use the rachet as it might strip the threads on the block. NEVER!
Tighten to 14 ft. lbs? or tighten using the rachet. Just snug. Dont use too much force now.
Put the spark plug boot back into the tube and repeat.
