Stuck Plug Wires

I have a 2007 Pontiac G6, 3.5L V6,Base model with 229,560 miles. Yes time for a little maintenance; got oil and oil filter changed finally - filter was being a beast and not coming out, but finally with Oil Filter Pliers got it out and everything else done.

I also bought new spark plugs to change out and after a day and a half, I have only managed to get good access to the 3 rear plugs, and gotten the #1 Wire off the plug. The other 5 Plug Wires seem to be stuck.

Any suggestions on how to remove the other 5 Plug Wires that are stuck without damaging them?

You can just pull them. That tool will be impossible on the back 3.
Ive changed my spark plugs twice and this last time I actually pulled the wire right out of the head of one of them.
Good thing I was replacing the wires. I ended up putting a bit of die electric grease in them for future ease in removal.

I switched out my spark plugs a couple months back and they were stuck on there so tight I ended up ripping the 3 of the wires right from the head like Lampoon mentioned in the previous comment! Worst part was the wife was out so I ended up having to walk to autozone to get a replacement wireset lol.

I just used a regular set of pliers to get the off, but obviously it didn't help much. My suggestion would be just to work at it to get them off and eventually you'll get it. Have a replacement wireset handy though lol.
