Ignition coil won't come out

Hi. I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7. I was trying to change my spark plugs, but I could not take off the ignition coil. I looked on wjjeeps.com and they said to slightly twist it but it still would not come out. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you in advanced.

well pull harder but chances are you are going to damage the coil you could try spraying the well with wd 40 like fill it..

No. Wd40 will dry out the rubber boot on the coil. Best bet is to pull harder with a slight twisting motion
