I sent engine data to the factory and they recommended swapping coil pack one and two to help diagnose the issue.  Has anyone disconnected their coil pack?  Here is a pic of what I believe is the disconnect point.  I pulled, twisted, pushed, etc with no luck in disconnecting.  I did not want to force it and break the connection.  Any help is appreciated.

Hi John (@johnannz), did you try pushing the lock ring in (the two half’s together) and then rotating it?

It should just be twist connector John.

You can see a version in this video (Nothing to do with me!) at around 6min 30seconds.

You can also see he had a bit a struggle undoing it as they lock/clock into place.

I don't have much experience with these but is there not a connector on the coil itself? Or have they potted the wires on?

@rlm-dan Thanks for the video.  Sorry but I have not been on for awhile.  I am posting the video from Spring Mountain for others benefit.  It was a twist but required a lot more force that I expected.  My biggest fear was breaking the connection and replacing the wiring loom.  It ended up coil pack 1 is bad and needs to be replaced.
