    Wire boot stuck in cylinder 2

    Hi,

    Today, I was trying to wipe up the oil in cylinders 2 and 4 (I do it once every few months) and when I tried to remove the boot in 2, it wouldn't come out. I didn't want to get too forceful, since the wires are brand new, but it just would not come out.

    Is the fact that I didn't grease the boots coming back to bite me in the ass?

    Is there anything I can do to get it out without ruining the wire?

    Did you try to rotate it before pulling? Usually doing that until the seal breaks will allow it to come out easily.
