    Spark Plug Boot, How to????

    How do you remove the boot from the plug end?? I had a wire come free and need to trim it back and re-install...
    Am i to remove the metal insert from the boot itself?? That seems like a task.....

    They are threaded into the wire end.

    Inside the boot there is a threaded stud that inserts into the center of the wire.

    So this stud, remove it first from boot?? or just strip wire and screw into boot??
    or just cut 1/4" off (no stripping) and thread into boot??!!
