When I plugged the wiring harness clip back onto a replacement coil for cylinder 2, 3 of the wire boots unseated from the clip. My question is,is there any possibility of arcing/shorting of the wire leads inside the clip with the small boots not seated.I am puzzled why three of the four came out when I plugged the clip back onto the coil. Any suggestions as to how I can get them re-seated fully inside the clip?How can I upload a picture for clarity?

    The "image" icon will let you upload a picture, but stopped working with Internet Explorer. Try using Chrome.

    OK I'm going to have to try and guess what happened. By "boots" are you referring to the green grommets (weatherpack seals) that are crimped onto the wire by the terminal? If so then what is happening is the terminals inside the connector are not secure and are being pushed out of it as you attempt to install the connector. Sometimes the terminals can be removed from the connector and the lock arm(s) repaired, but most of the time you probably need to install new pins and you might even need a new connector body. In many cases there are repair kits known as "pigtail" connectors that can be spliced into the harness.
