Q: how to remove black case for front plug wires

asked by on

Trying to replace front plug wires . Cannot open black protective case. How do I open to access wires

My car has 78000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You will need to support the motor with a jack underneath and remove the motor mount bracket (so the plug wire cover can then be opened to get the plug wires out). If you do not remove the motor mount then you will have to route the new wires on the outside and wire tie them with wire loom covers too hold them away from the exhaust manifold.
