Removing Spark Plug Cover 13 RT

Can someone direct me to a video or good description on how to remove the spark plug cover on the right hand cylinder on my 2013 RT? Im talking about the black plastic on the outside of the cylinder head, the first thing to remove.

Re: Removing Spark Plug Cover 13 RT

You have to pry it off from the bottom edge where it ends under the cylinder head cover. It have be pretty tight and I sometimes have to resort to using the edge of a flat head screwdriver to get enough purchase to do it. If you do this though do be careful not to damage the wiring under it.

I don't recall offhand if it needs to come off too but there's a metal cover under the cylinder head cover that's held on with 3 T25 screws. Take a look under there before you actually start doing it.

Getting the coil pack off can be a real pain too so it helps to have the tool that's available.
