S52 Engine heads up

Service tech's are reporting the spark plug socket being found cracked. Its the part between the coil and the plug. Sympton is misfire and the fix is replacement of the part . I haven't had any luck uploading from the parts CD. Might be something we should replace at some time during preventive maintenance.

The #1 plug/coil/insulator was cracked on my 99.
I discovered it while poking around, checked the rest and they looked okay.
I had them (the dealer) replace it and check the rest during Inspection II (due a week after I made the discovery).
And yes, the plugs are changed during Insp II.
