Default 09 Maxima Spark Plug Change

The Dealer wants 400 to 500 dollars to change plugs on my 09 maxima (130,000 miles). I am not able to locate a DIY on replacing the plugs. Anybody know of a good DYI on this topic?

Basically, you have to remove the upper intake manifold (or "plenum") so you can remove the rear, three ignition coils. The front three coils are easy to remove. Once the coils are removed, you can R&R the spark plugs. Stick with the original type, NGK Laser Iridiums. While the plenum gasket is "technically" re-usable, I would replace it with a new gasket, if it were mine. As mentioned above, there are YouTube vids on the process.
