If this ever happens to you... here's what I did.

I was checking my #5 plug as it was light in the past (if you recall) and I had recently changed the injector. (Plug is still lighter than the others)

Anyhow, after I re threaded the plug in, I fiddled for over an hour trying to get the plug wire clipped back on. NO GO. Insert all kinds of colorful adjectives here... Turns out the rubber insert inside the swanky Porsche supplied spark plug removing tool. It took me that long (please refrain from commenting) to finally clue in and look at the tool.. what a revelation I tell you.

Then I realized that , great, I figured it out but I still have to get the rubber out from around the plug..not as easy as it may sound.

SO I put some crazy glue on the tool, re-inserted it and twisting it slightly as I did. I waited a few minutes and then removed it. I had tried without glue and that didn't work initially.

So there you have it. Crazy glue, never leave home without it (and tie-wraps, duct tape, and relays)
