I’ve been getting some odd misfires (in and out of boost) plus lots of lumpiness on cold mornings. I discovered the coil was arching so decided to replace rather than rebuild (but will prob rebuild for “spare” use).
Needle nose pliers
Optional : file, hacksaw, beer
New Coil pack
1) Disconnect coil pack connector from the wiring harness, its just to the left of the coil pack.
2) Undo the 2 x 12mm bolts holding the coil pack to the head/cam cover.
3) Look in around behind and below the coilpack for the 3rd bolt. (see pic) Its a PITA to get to unless you’ve a very small socket or hands like a very small child. I couldn’t find any children to borrow so used a 12mm spanner and got it out eventually.
1) To avoid this painful issue in the future, cut out a slot in the bottom of the new coilpack, put the bolt in first, then slot the coilpack down onto it and just tighten.
2) Replace the 2 x 12mm bolts removed earlier.. connect up the connector and you are done.
