The coil rubber adhered to the smooth surface of the spark plug. Most plugs are ribbed but these are smooth. Use some silicone grease when reinstalling.

Personally, given that you had at least some trouble, I am surprised that you did not put dielectric/silicone grease on the boots when you reinstalled them. The problem is only going to get worse with age, and it is possible the factory forgot the grease on that one which is why you had a problem in the first place.

Glad you got it worked out, did you replace the boot on the coil?

I'm asking how you actually remove the plugs. I've pulled them plenty on cars but that rubber boot in the top view shot leaves me wondering how you get a socket to bite it.

Does silicon grease have petroleum in it? This would eat away at the rubber sleeve.

I have Blaster dry lube with PTFE that is good with plastic - and I assume rubber.
