See pics, will this have caused any damage to the plugs, i'm not happy

    I pursonally wouldn't worry.
    It is a bit like their version of WD40, which can also be used to lubricate and de-grease.

    As said above, they have just included the spray within a "generic" category for ease of their stock control system.

    As long as what it says on the tin, is what you want from the spray, then it should be fine.

    my only worry would be if its been sprayed on a multi wire plug block will it cause a short, but I use WD on mine with no problems, if you are not happy I am sure wd will disolve this grease.

    may not be in glasgow though.

    I know for me, sometime halfords is just so much easier and if its 50p dearer - who cares.
