Yeah, that would be just as easy. Buying all of the parts at the Stihl dealer would be that much, and you would still have to put them together!!
The "torsion spring" as Stihl calls it is a €1.20 part. Even assuming Stihl obscenely touched up the price you are looking at a €1.50 part. Throw in the €5/5.50 genuine boot and it's about the same as a generic no-name "spark plug boot and clip" on eBay, minus shipping.but do I get better quality parts . The dealer told me the boot is $5 I haven't asked about the wire and I do have the spark plug end piece but I'm not sure if i need a new one
The "trick" is top use silicone spray and force the spring first and then wire into the wire exit side of the boot. Just IGNORE what they show in the manual or you'll pull your hair out... if you have any left!Putting it back together can be tricky, so the pre-made one looks pretty good, if you can get one in your area.
