Easiest way is to have hands the size of a 5 year old to fit in those tight spaces.

Deep well socket with a swivel attachment works well too.

Make sure to dab a small amount of anti seize to the plug threads and always start threading them by hand.

I also suggest using compressed air to blow any debris or grit out of the spark plug well before removing the plug.
I know the OEM cap has the seal portion of the plug lead to prevent this, but it still gets by.
