I have a Huynday Elantral model year 2000.
112,000 miles
4 cyllinder engine

While changing the spark plugs I realized that one of the rubber boots stayed on one of the plugs. Therefore I am unable to get the spark plug socket onto the plug to loosen it and remove. These plugs are recessed about 8 inches inside a metal tube. I removed the valve cover hoping the tube could be removed. Unfortunately there is no clear way to remove the tube and now I am hopeing you can help. :Mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Take a coat hanger or other thin metal and make a small hook on one end. Stick it between the plug and boot and turn so the hook grabs the rubber boot and pull it out. Might still take a little patience, that is usually how they come out
