The stock plug shields on both my Passat and ur-quattro are _very_ hard
to pull off - #5 takes about all my finger strength.

Found an interesting one on Galvin's 200TQ.  The wire had pulled out,
leaving a gap between the wire and the inner conductor of the plug
shield.  The spark preferred jumping to the shield, and wore a lovely
pinhole through the internal insulation.
