Hi guys, I'm hoping someone might have advice on how to remove a coil pack that seems to be stuck fast/ caught on god knows what. My car has intermittent shuddering and loss of power, and I reckon it's the spark plugs/ sensor and wanted to do a little visual inspection/ replace the plugs before I shell out/ take it to the garage.

I've unclipped the cover, unplugged the sensor (that was hard enough), unscrewed the torx screws and fitted a couple of 8mm bolts to help with leverage. Bloody thing wont budge! It wiggles about, and I can rock the coil pack from side to side, getting the initial 3 ribs of the rubber seal out to release any suction, but any further that that is impossible. I was under the impression you could gently lift it out, but short of getting the hulk to have a go, I'm at a loss of what to do. Any ideas?

Soak in wd40 for as long as you can, check all the bolts are out and go for it
