On our 2000 2.0L you pull them off then push them back on... if you're talking about the little clips on the boots on the ignition coil side, those compress automatically. On the cylinder head side, if you're replacing the wires anyway, just yank them off. If you're trying to reuse the wires, you need some kind of tool to pull from the metal boot part instead of the wire. I use a cotter pin puller for this but there is a special tool made for it (once again, if you're replacing the wires anyway, its not needed becausse you would not be concerned about damaging the old wires)TeddyTiger said:Okay, I bought all of the Ignition parts quite a while ago, OEM Wires & a set of OEM Bosch plugs. My question is, I know the sparkplug wire boots have those clips that need to be released to get the boot off of the plug. Do I have to get the tool for those, or can I use a pair of 90 degree needle nose pliers? Or, does someone know where I can get the tool to squeeze those clips? Thanks!
