Title: Clips on coil packs
Post by: Twistedjim on July 09, 2015, 03:02:40 PM
Does anyone know the best way to take off the clips on the coil pack. I've tried pushing a screwdriver into the clip but it won't budge, any help or advice would be greatly received. Thanks in advance 😀

don't think theres an easy way,  i did mine and they were all sods to unclip, it is just a matter of putting a small flathead in the clip  and easing it free so you can  pull it off,  i did break a few clips but doesn't seem to do any harm.
when there off  the best way to get the coil packs out is to put some water pump pliers on top and gently rock from side to side as you ease up gently.

Yeah, if the clip isn't broken then you use a screwdriver to ease up the lug as per the picture you posted, this releases a locking tab within the connector- a couple more pictures showing the method of operation on a similar connector here.
