Ignition coil rubber protection
« on: December 29, 2020, 10:58:19 »
Hi all you there,

Yesterday while changing my spark plugs I ran into an irritating problem.

The changing of the outer spark plugs was quite simple due to their accessibility.
The hidden ones are more like a nightmare.

There is little room to work and when I wanted to pull up the coil (?) the rubber 'hat' just broke in 2 pieces and the plastic tube inside snapped.





Has anybody an idea how I take on this problem?

Many thanks in advance,
Bruno - Bruvex - Van Loo

PS: I wish you all a happy, healthy and covid-less 2021!

I also had this problem - it broke.
Just crush and blast compressed air to the outside.

Update.

I don't have compressor at home so I couldn't use the solution proposed by Bogdan.

Since both the coils were damaged I punctured 2 wholes at the outside and lifted them out with two 'pins' (like a screw-driver ending on a small point) using a small piece of wood for some leverage.

Next time I'll drive with the spark-plugs until they really start to malfunction.
They're iridium ones (the old and the new) and looking at them I expect they will last longer than 56000 klms.

Greetings,
Bruvex

i had one rubber come apart as well, so luckily i could glue it back together with engine gasket silicone, let that dry, then applied a layer right round it. it works fine, but know if i take it off again it will need replacing.
