Plug wire broken or not?

So I am unsure if the metal extension that is attached to the end of the spark plug is something that can be removed and reinstalled or is it internally part of the spark plug cap. When I pulled the spark plug wire boot off of the plug it left a metal extension piece on the plug. The other three all came off and stayed inside of the spark plug cap. Is my wire broken internally at the Where it connects to this extension? Thanks for the help. If Anyone can confirm the correct torque for the factory nuts on to the studs at the exhaust manifold I would appreciate it

First of all we know what make, year and model as well as engine size you are working on.
The end of the plug wire can be slipped back on with the wire or carbon string placed between the metal connector and the plug wire itself. The connector can be squeezed together with pliers. Using silicone Di-Electric compound on the plug and the wire connector can help prevent this.
The wire can be checked for continuity with an ohm meter.

Sorry I was not clear, I was in hurry.....what I have is a w22 with the 8.1 and it has stock plug wires with metal heat shields. When I removed one spark plug boot a metal extension about 2 1/2 inches long stayed on the plug. What I am trying to figure out is if I can put the ‘spark plug extension’ back into the boot Either by reassembling it the same way it came apart, or Putting the extension piece back into the spark plug boot first. If there is no crimp Where the conductor meets at the boot then it will work. I.e. if the spark plug boot just has a metal receptacle that would normally connect to the top of the spark plugs like a normal style would. I have never run into this style of boot.

It is broken. The metal clip that stayed with your spark plug is crimped onto the end of the wire. Sure it is possible to fix it but not worth it. It is compromised and should be replaced.

Personally, I would upgrade to the Ultra RV Magnum wires and call it a day.

With the right plugs and wires, you will be glad you replaced them. I called Jon at Ultra RV Products and he set me up with the right set with a lifetime warranty. That means if you do happen to pull another connector off the wire, Highly Unlikely, They will replace it for free. I noticed the difference right away.
