Default Changing Wires

What is the "trick" in getting the wires of the distributor cap? Do I
need a special tool? I have a Camry 92 V6

On '90 camry, there are some plastic clip on each one that hold the plug
wire on the dist cap.
I think you have to squeeze the clip and twist and remove the rubber boot
from dist cap, don't pull the wire, grab the rubber boot and wiggle it
out.
Might have better access if you remove the cap.
If cap and rotor have not been replace in awhile, might be time for new
on.

I believe you're supposed to change the wires and cap as a unit.
Probably a good idea to also replace the rotor, and thin gasket at the
base of the cap aka "distributor packing."
Also recommended by many knowledgeable folks with unfortunate
experiences to the contrary, to stay with factory original parts only
for secondary iginition components - significantly better quality.
On my '94, 4 cylinder, the wires and cap are supplied separately, but
when you install the wires they click firmly into position - don't
know how you could remove them at that point because the plastic
locking clip is inside the distributor towers.

Yeah, If you are working on the dist area, its a good ideal to replace the
O-ring on the dist shaft to prevent oil from leaking from the shaft.

I replaced dist shaft O-ring, dist cap, rotor, wires, and missing dist cap
large o-ring on my '90 camry.
Toyota plugs wire are nicely bundled together with support plastic
brackets that pop right on the engine, at the proper location. Very nice
design.
You'll pay a few more $ for OEM parts, but you know they will fit
correctly.
Mail ordering parts from Butler toyota save lots of $$$ compared to local
dealer.
