    Coilpack is just pushed onto the spark plug, so how the hell did he manage that, did you see him do this cause if not sounds like he fecked up mate.

    But should be able to remove rest with some long thin nose pliers, its only pushed over the spark plug.

    The coil is just pushed onto the plug so theoretically he should be able to pull it of the plug somehow, its not that tight unless its actually melted onto the plug itself, cant see it but anythings possible.
