YEs you need a special socket, for the N54 those wont work, the socket is very very thin, get one from burger tunning with plugs for 90 bucks or so

Once you have the cover off the engine, you will see the coils, pull up on the coil tab, just pull up straight from the front of the tab, the tab once pulled in up position releases the tab connector to the coil.

Once you have the connector off, put a fat screwdriver or something thick through the hole on the tab and gently pull up on the coil, it will come off if you wiggle it a little, dont break any of the tabs.
