Wire removal for 96 Camry
The wires all have a plastic protective cap Each one is made to fit a particular wire. The cap has hole for the wire to pass through and then clips on to the distributor. I like to slide something like a match under the clip while I try and pull the cap over and down the wire. Once it is removed, the wires will come off.
Its easier if you can remove the duct work for the air cleaner first to get better access
