Crack in plastic part of spark plug wires

Not sure what it is called, But i found a crack in the plastic head part above the spark plug. I've change spark plug wires in other cars. It doesnt look the same in a tacoma. I have an extended warranyt plan. I have to bring it in to see if it is covered. If not is this something i can fix my self?

Wow...i feel like an idiot

I completely forgot, that it snaps right of the wires coming off of the coil pack.

Are you experiencing a misfire on that cylinder?

If not, I'd epoxy the crack and forget about it.

+1 if you couldn't get the part for free with the warranty........then epoxy it if it's not misfiring.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You can replace that one only, but it doesnt look that bad. Thats just a plastic housing over the actual coil.

I hate to think what a full coil pack replacement would cost.
