Spark plug cover question

Last fall could not turn over my wacker. Attempted to change spark plug. When i removed cover the wire coil came off the cover and was attached to plug. Is there any way to reconnect this coil or do I need a new cover? If I do need a new cover is this a simple fix?
Thanks

If you're talking about the spark plug boot coming off the spark plug wire, oftentimes you can just firmly jam the boot back onto the wire.
thanks,

thanks,
Doesn't this wire connect to another wire within a sealed casing? How will I know if the two wires are connected?
Thanks

Push the rubber boot back up the plug wire so the wire end is sticking out. You'll see a smal hole where the little wire clip was inserted into the plug wire. Re-insert it there, bending it if necessary, and then slide the boot back over the entire works. The boot keeps it held together.
