Default Need Quick Plug Change Help

Hey Guys, Im almost done changing the plugs on my 02 Z28. All the plugs are done except #8. (rearmost passenger side). For the life of me I cannot get the boot to come off the stupid plug! I can get my hand on it just fine,but I dont have the room down there to pull on it. FYI, my car has 43,xxx miles and Im removing the stock plugs.

Less typing, more pulling. It's a pain in the *** but you'll get it eventually. Or find a strong guy with small hands, if that's possible.

LOL....you were right. Just kept pulling on it and it popped off. What a pain in the butt. Glad I did it though because the plugs are really warn down.
