okay guys im buying new plugs and wires for my 94 318is. I know to take out the plugs you take off the bmw plastic thing take the wire off of them, use the extension and take em out, same for putting em back in. easy. but what about my wires i can get them out of the block, but it seems like they are stuck into my coil (i think thats what it is) pretty good, they go into that black box on the bottom and seem to be in there really good and ive pulled really ahrd and no luck! what do i do to get this end of the wire off? and then when im putting my new ones on do i just plug them back into that black box the coil i think run them along the same path as they went before and plug them into the new spark plug? would it be better if i did one wire at a time so i can see the path it took to make sure i put it back in right? any tips would be great!
Thanks!

David

You take a screwdriver and pry the silver metal clip up then the wire slips out the back.
