Not sure what plugs you are referring to but i can give you some removal ideas. What kind of plugs are they? Metal, rubber, plastic? Are they threaded or pushed in?

Might want to look into sourcing replacements B4 drilling those out.

Flushing & blowing out passages is much more common than removing factory plugs for cleaning.
