removing clip on spark plug boot / V6 Spark plug

Engine : 1MZ-FE V6

i changed the front 3, rear right spark plugs.

Problem
I can't even get the clip /plug boot out of the rear middle and rear left. Please Advise

Did some research .. and some guy said WD40 will work fine and buy some electrical grease.??!!???!?!

Are there other easier ways to replace the rear plugs..? p

There is no easier way. You're just gonna have to stop being a bitch and build up some forearm strength.
I've done this a bunch of times...

I'm here to ask for help, your advise did little to nothing. Seems like you have the experience in auto tech but i don't. But thanks for the reply. One last thing, if i do have the strength or technique to pull the clips, i won't be here asking for help

what year and model car/van/cuv is it anyways?

the coils all have a M6 10mm head bolt holding them down... some of them had plug wires that wrapped from the coils around to the other 3 plugs... if there's a plug wire that runs to them, there's nothing holding them in other than what's attached to the spark plug...

pull straight and wiggle... hopefully it releases without breaking the wire inside the boot... if it does, you gotta get a pair of pliers in there to pull that off before you can pull the plug out... and you'll have to replace the wire (set)

Remove bolt.. get a right size flat blade screwdriver to lift the latch? WD40 is used as a solvent to try to dissolve the dirt and loosen it up. Once you get it out use a used toothbrush and clean any bolt / screw chase.. dry it out.. then apply so dielectric grease so next time would be easier.

i would avoid using WD40... just squeeze the tab really hard and jiggle... try pushing it IN a little bit while squeezing the clip, and then pulling...
