Fun times replacing spark plugs

    So I just popped new plugs in for the first time, bought my 2006 tC at 74k miles and now it's at 145k. Not sure if the dealer replaced them or not. Everything went great but when I went to unplug the electronics that stupid plastic lock broke off every single one. I know this stuff gets brittle over time but that was annoying. My issue right now is, do I replace those plug heads or just leave them as is? They're fairly snug but I don't know how dangerous it might be to have them sitting where they could theoretically pop off from vibrations. Replacing them looks like it might be a pain given all the wiring in there. Anyone dealt with this before? Preemptive "Hey what's up thanks for all your help man" to sciontc_mich lol

    Edit: And of course tc_mich already has a stickied thread on this exact topic hahaha. Should have looked first.

    Question remains though: Is this ok to leave as is or should I replace asap?

    lol.. hey look your found my sticky about the replacement connectors! you're welcome! yeah it's a common issue, it seems to happen more to the 2nd+ owners.. I'm the original owner of mine and they haven't broken yet.. ya just watch, now they'll break! lol.. I'd replace them but that's me. You could always try and zip tie the connector to the ignition coil.. that way it wouldn't vibrate it's way off..
