Get a metal coat hanger and untwist it to make a long probe. Create a J hook at the business end and insert into the well and rotate to allow the hook to grab under the rubber boot and pull upwards. No need to remove the covers.

Well that would be wonderful if I could get ANYTHING between the broken coil pack and the valve cover.It is flush. I have tried a coat hanger and even one that I had ground down to almost flat. There is zero room around the outside to fit anything.Thats why I was asking if the valve cover would come off without taking out the spark plugs, my thoughts are that if it will it should pull off the remainder of the coil pack. But I can' seem to get an answer to this question.This vehicle has sat still for over 2 years with this problem. My Son traded for it and now it is a lawn ornament on my property.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can remove the valve covers without plug removal.
