I have a low mileage 1995 C220. The plugs have never been changed. I am trying to remove the ceramic/plastic sparkplug boots. They don,t seem to want to pull off. There is a knob on the top of the boot to pull them with. I don't want to break them. Are there any special tricks to remove them. (WD40, twisting, etc.) Any suggestions. I did a search on other models but these seem differant.

My thought is that that there may be some sticking of the sides of the connector in the bore and that this can be loosened by spraying some WD-40 or sliding a shim to free them up. I would hate to break one of these connectors, they are $18 each and the fear of having to dig out the broken piece is a concern. Someone out there must have had the same problem.
