    Not sure but you can get replacements if you do end up breaking any. There are two different types. I guess the heat and exposure weakens them eventually.

    Hey Rubes,

    thanks for your heads up.
    But where can I find such replacements?
    I can't find any info in the forum link you gave me.

    Regards,

    Are youe sure that those ones will fit a Falco?
    We have two different plug caps on a Falco. Some short ones and some loger ones. Both have an angle of 120 degree.

    Those ones on ebay have an angle of 90 degree and look very different.
    I doubt that this will fit.
