Q: How to install the spring for the coil on a 08 srx. The coil on plug boot spring

asked by on

Hi purchase a tune up kit for a 08 cadillac srx 3.6 l awd. It came with a set of 6 coil on plug boots which contain 2 rubber pieces and a spring per set. The coil on plug boots is for the coils. The instructions says to remove both rubber pieces and spring (1 rubber piece at the top of coil by connector 2 rubber piece at the tip of coil where spark plug insert and the spring gos inside tip of coil where spark plug gos) i took the old spring out but im having trouble putting in knew spring. How do i put in the knew spring?

Typically, the spring is longer than the distance between the top of the spark plug and the bottom of the coil (without the boot attached). Therefore, if you just push the spring into the rubber boot, the spring should attach to the top of the spark plug and then when the coil is bolted down, the spring should push itself up into place.
