Default 03 ranger spark plug R&R

Hi everyone, this is my first post. I Have changed about 100 sets of spark plugs in my life but I do not have a clue how to get to the plugs on the passenger side on my 03 Edge
4.0 liter sohc especially the one closest to the fire wall. Is there a standard procedure? or a way developed by someone? or should I pay the $220 at the shop to change 6 plugs. I have all standard tools and experience using them.
Help, Thanks, Oregon Bob

Pull the tire. Pull off the splash shield and then just fight at it

Will need a small extension swivel to get it. Or just use the extension and ratchet and u have to use short strokes to get it out

Thanks, I was afraid of that was the answer (just Kidding).
I am 60yrs old and not as good in tight spaces as I used to be.

That is messed up taking pictures like that. I have a 4.0 2000 ranger and had the same issue, but I never took the guards off, I just banged up the knuckes going in and it took for fricken ever to get that one plug out on the passenger side nearest the fire wall. I know, that was a long sentence, make sure to breath when reading!!
