Spark plugs

So I got spark plugs for my 03 2.4 but I can't seem to get (from my guess) the coils off the spark plugs or maybe I'm just in the wrong place. Anybody have any insights?

there are bolts along the coil pack strip that you have to take out to remove the coil pack from the spark plugs

It does take a nice tug to get the boots to separate from the actual plug. Try to wiggle it a little as you are pulling to see if that helps.

If you dab a little dielectric grease on the porcelain before boot install, they'll pull off easily next time.

Ok so wiggling the coils didn't work but I know that I have to remove the throttle body to get to cylinder 3 but what about these bolts to remove the coil pack?

I went on YouTube, look up changing plugs on a 2.4 wrangler. A lot of good information.

Not on a 2.4L engine.

There is no need to do anything with the coil pack.

When i did mine i thought they would rip out. I had to pry them out with a screw driver so as to not pull on the wire itself. Be prepared to buy new wires JIC.
