Once the Coil packs are exposed, Disconnect the connector. You may need a flat tip screwdriver to press the retaining clip at the same time you are pulling the connector out of the socket.
Once the connector is disconnected the coil packs can be pulled off of the spark plug. It may be snug so a little persuasion with a large flat tip screw driver may be needed. Do not be too rough with it. The coil packs are easily damaged so brute force may not be your best friend here.

2005 Cavalier misfiring on 2 cylinders, dumping fuel

Spark plugs get there voltage from the ignition coil packs, more then likely you have a bad coil pack or coil pack boot, pull one coil pack or spark plug wire or boot at a time, if you see a drop in rpm, that one is good, if no drop bad coil pack.

Hi I have a vw Jetta 3 1994 clx carb model coil pack keep packing up now have conversion of Jetta 2 Modulator but Rev counter is playing up oil buzzer keep sounding. Can all this be caused by the...

Your Jetta 2 modulator is not compatible with the Jetta 3 electronics, especially when it comes to the coil as they give different stokes of spark to the distributor. Oil switch must have a pressure leak. Replace the switch as a small leak of pressure can cause the sensor buzzer to sound. The modulator have no influence on the oil pressure switch.

1998 vw jetta turns over but won't start check engine light on

The coil pack on these are bad about being defective. You need to check to see if you have power coming from your coil pack. If you do not try changing it out, this produces 60k +/- volts that goes through your ignition wires, to your spark plugs and ignites the gas on combustion with the piston. If it's not giving off a spark, thenyou're not getting power to fire off the engine.

How do i plug in the spark plug coils? what order?

If it's the four cyl., the first coil pack bolts over the #2 spark plug. The #2 coil pack wire plugs into #3 spark plug. The number two coil pack bolts directly over the number four spark plug, and the #2 coil pack wire plugs into the #4 plug. The firing order is 1-4-2-3.

96vw jeta won't start and i've changed both engine and trans mission computers and i stilll don't get any fire.

Have you checked for spark. Where did you get the coil? I have found that aftermarket coils do not work on these only the factory ones. I can't explain it. But I have one in my shop with a bad coil and got two from o'reilly and two from napa and both would do nothing. Got one from VW, car ran perfect. Checked the aftermarket coils and the resistance was different on the primary side of the coil.

You may have a bad coil pack - try moving two of them around and see if the misfire follows the coil pack or stays at the same cylinder. If it follows the coil pack, get a new one. If it stays in the same cylinder, inspect your spark plug wires and make sure the plug is gapped correctly.
