I went to the dealership and they told me that the top right terminal on the coil pack was 1, and 2 was below it, 3 next to 1 and 4 was under 3 and 5 was top left where as 6 was below that.
Now, the cylinders (according to page 1-5 of the Bentley manual) are arranged were cylinders 1,3,5 are closest to the firewall, from passenger to driver in order. And the front cylinders from passenger to driver are 2,4,6.
Knowing this layout is critical to understanding what terminal on the pack goes to which cylinder.
I probably did not word my question very well. Firing order means nothing when you don't have documentation on the cylinder layout and you have no documentation on the coil pack. It is not possible to know what wires go where when you know the firing order and nothing else.
I am old school; I worked on round distributors with rotors. If you knew the 1st terminal, then 2,3,4,5,6,7,8 were no brainers. Typically the repair manual gave you the location of terminal 1 as well as the each cylinder number. Very often the firing order would be stamped into the intake manifold.
Now days it is nothing less than a state secret what terminals are what and what on the coil pack and cylinders are which. Once I get this worked out I am going to post the layout in a diagram and make this information available to the public.
This seems like such a fundamental bit of information would be in the Bentley manual..., I mean Bentley even shows the layers of paint on the car and labels them, yet does not mention the coil pack terminals.
They even have a diagram on where to cut the tip off a tube of "gasket in a tube", but the poor ol' coil pack is missing in action!
Thanks for the photo, I am off to try the wires in that order. I already broke one wire end (new wire set coming). I am trying to be a gentle as possible, pulling and twisting straight. These plug wires really pull off the coil hard!
