I am twisting and pulling and can't get the spark plug connector off. Any more tips? If the outside one is this hard I don't know how the middle ones are going to come out

are you talking about the whole coil pack or just the electrical connector that connects on the coilpack ?

if about the connector, sometimes you need to push on it first then depress the tab and then pull it back

try using a flat screwdriver with tape on it(you dont want to scratch the paint on the head cover)

they can be pretty sturborn, since they are clipped on the spark plug head

It is tricky. Rotate them first a few turns either direction. If still they don't pop up, get a small piece of wood and gently lever between the block and connector. Be careful not to crack the connector plastic though!

It's a tricky operation no doubt about it. Only just enough room to get the smallest hands in there with the radiator dropped.
