    Default Ignition coil screw fixings

    I have just gone to change the coil on my sig.
    When trying to remove the bolts 3 of them did not seem to move up when unscrewing.
    The coil removed and I now have 3 small metal threads that are supposed to sit in the cylinder head out.
    Obviously at some stage this has been overtightned and the thread has been pulled up.
    I can put them back in but I want to know if I should put anything inbetween that will secure the thread in place?
    Is there anything that will stick metal to plastic that I should use (locktight maybe)??

    If its a place where it is posible to work, then I would go for helicoil.

    They sit on top of the rocker cover.
    They look like what I am talking about.
    Should I replace these then or just try and stick the others back in

    You can't put the threads back in. You'll have to put helicoil in instead. Helicoil are new threads and is a god solution on defective threads. Or maybe you just could put new and a little longer bolts in. Try to see if theres a little bit of threads left.
