Default Cylinder Head Plug Replacement?

Hey there,

B16A2 engine VTEC, DOTC 2000 Honda Civic SI

I was downstairs attempting to replace the cylinder head plug as I believe there is some oil coming from it. I already purchased the part, and cleaned everything off, baby powdered it up. All I need to know is:

1) Do I need to take off both camshaft holder plates to get to this or can i take the one off?
2) can i just unbolt the camshaft holder that the plug is on?

The Haynes and Helms manual only mention pictures or servicing the whole valve, rockers, etc. All i want to do is replace this plug, but leary I am going to screw something up.
