You don't need it. Put a wire or zip tie around the coil and pull out. I did my spark plugs in about 30 min without any kind of puller

+1, or just use your hands. Wiggle them a big and they can be yanked out without the risk of breaking them.

Another method is using strong fishing line and then wrapping it on top of the coil and yank out. Takes less than 5 mins and light amount of force.

He should still be around, although is unable to offer them through the site. I got one from him a month or two ago, but have not got around to changing my plugs yet.

If anyone is up for a Texas spark plug changing party, I am in Cibolo.

The dealer wanted $800.00 to change them.
