You don't need to take "the top" off anything. All you need is a spark plug wrench. Wait till th eengine is cold. Pull the spark plug wire boot off the plug then remove the plug with the wrench. Then put in a new one in its place. Thread in by hand at first, and then give it an extra twist with the wrench extension. If you want to be extra anal, you can shoot some compressed air around the plug before you remove it to prevent any grime from falling through the hole into the cilinder.
