Default 2010 2.4L Spark Plug Location

I don't have a manual so I was hoping to get some help on where the plugs are located. I am assuming I have to take the plastic off the top of the engine but I am not sure. Thanks for any info!

The plastic cover over the engines needs to be removed to gain access to the plugs.

It has almost 100 000 on it. They are iridium. I replaced them with autolite iridium XP. And it was surprisingly easy. All the plastic on top the engine just snaps off!

sometimes people use air to blow away dirt that can accumulate around the spark plug hole. some models plugs are enclosed by the ignition coils so not dirt build up will occur. so what year is your nox?
