Removing Spark Plugs

Is there a specific way that the caps on the Spark Plugs need to be removed or do you just pull on them? I've got it down to there but I don't want to break those caps.

I can't find anything specific on this matter in a search.

That was my inclinations, but didn't want to break anything if there was another way.

I just pull them out by hand with a bit of a twisting motion. So far I haven't broken them.

It is a useful move to learn since - according to the manual - they need to be replaced approximately weekly!

Yeah you break the bond first by twisting them back and forth, and pull while twisting like Mursili mentioned. A bit of dielectric compound can prevent them from sticking again, and protect the rubber seals.
