Coil Pack access

Is it possible to access the coil pack on a 2000 Rav4 without removing the throttle body? I want to check the resistance due to a cylinder 2 and 3 misfiring (P0302 and P0303 error codes)

At my 97 RAV4 i can access the coils without removing the throttle body.
Moving the (top of the) air box might give you some more room, but not really needed. Unplug the spark plug wires to test them electrically, and check for 'lightning strike' marks there, which indicate very high resistance/ broken wiring.
If it's not broken or indicating high resistance, check if you have Bosch wiring. Those should be replaced even if not giving obvious problems. Many have experienced lots of issues with this brand plug wiring.

Thanks -- but I already replaced plugs and wires so wanted to do a resistance check on the coil. This is my daughter's car so dont have it in front of me to check but I was told that the throttle body needed to be removed. Didnt want to remove the throttle body until I know or pretty sure that the coil is bad.
