If the metal clip has come out of the end of the lead its stuffed.

I've never bothered trying to repair them myself but someone else may have..?

AFAIK they are put together with silicone lube and aren't like regular wires..

Only thing i can suggest at this point is see if a friend or relo can lend you a lead till tomorrow.. someone you know may have a set spare from replacing them or something.. sorry mate..

^^ what he said. Or use an old lead. But the temp repair should work. Doesnt matter if its shorter, 7mm, 6mm. As long as its an ignition lead

If you *must* run around on 5 cylinders, consider disconnecting the injector so your not putting raw fuel through to your cat. your O2 sensor isnt going to be in love with how your car goes either.
