On my 100Q, the loom snaps open and has little channels for each wire.
It is split, look carefully at the top edge.

It was about 2 minutes work to put the new wires in. Looks great,
keeps them out of the way.

BTW, for which wires, the Bosch were pretty good, but I swear by
the Blue Ignitors (from Rapid Parts). Cost was about $100, versus
about $80 for Bosch, versus $$$???$$$ from dealer. They're 5 years
old and run great. When I had a problem with one (monkey fingers
pulled a wire off a connector), Rapid Parts fixed them no charge
under the lifetwime warranty.
