Cry Like A Baby 156 v6 2.5 coil pack failure

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help with this- I have a v6 2001 156 and have been told that according to diagnostics, coil pack 4 and 6 have failed- just wanted to check if it's as simple as being located on the front bank (easy looking replacement) or on the rear bank (nightmare looking replacement!!!)
Thanks

When were the spark plugs last changed? Sign of any oil leaks around the top end of the engine?

Hi, thanks for the replies :-) thought it was the front as have seen them numbered on pics of older alfa v6's- had to check though as there was a voice in my head saying it couldn't be that simple :-) . No sign of oil anywhere but I think I'll need to change the plugs anyway, not long had it as it needs a bit of tlc to bring it back to it's former glory so I'm taking it one step at a time (well, one pay day at a time anyway!) as the exhaust is also blowing badly as well- checked that today and it seems to be coming front the left side downpipe- and actually on the joint (as if the gasket has worn away in fact) as I've always had Twin sparks I'm not sure if either of these issues are common on the v6
