Question Help with plug wires

Hello, I have a 2002 Saturn SC1 and after tracining around it to find the miss in the number 3 cyl. I have come to the conclusion that I need to change plug wires. I thought my miss was due to bad gas until I got a "code reader". I played with the plugs today and moved around some of the wires and it is running great again. I have 108.000 kilo. on it and should change plug wires anyway. MY problem is that I am not sure how to get them off of the coil pack. Do I have to take the packs off or does that plastic clip move so I can unplug them.Any advise and any pic. would be greatly helpful. I have used this sight to solve this problem and am sure glad I stumbled on to it, thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you look more closely you will see an 8mm bolt going through the center of the clip holding the wires. Remove it, then pull. I don't think a pictorial is required to remove two bolts.

Come on this is something super ion2 could drag out to a 5 page tutorial with
muti pictures and a video. Then he could give options and tuning info

On my SC I found the spark plug wires to last only about 50-60k miles.

The best policy was changing the spark plug wires every second spark plug replacement. F

FYI... Bosch spark plug wires are guaranteed for the life of your car.
