Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks.

In this video, we show you how to remove and reinstall the coil. Actually in these vehicles, the 1.4 and 1.6 liter, there's a coil per cylinder. It's recommended to replace these every 100,000 miles. For this, it's pretty easy. All you need is a flat blade screwdriver and a 10 mm wrench or a socket with a ratchet.

Replace the coils. You probably should do it every 100,000 miles. It looks like, actually, this car has been done pretty recently. It's pretty clean. It's pretty straightforward. There are a couple of little locks up here and this piece comes off. There's a harness here. Use your screwdriver and push on the tab up closer to the top and the harness disconnects from each one. Then, you need a 10 mm wrench or socket and ratchet to undo the nut. Pull firmly on the coil, and it comes up out.

Like I said, this looks fairly new. Put it down in. If you want, you can actually connect your harness first. Push the coil down on, put your nut back on and then tighten it up firmly. Like I said, probably every 100,000 miles replace all four. Put this back down and then you go, and they turn 90 degrees to lock in place.
