6.0 Plug Wires

What is the deal with part of the internals of plug wire staying attached to plug when wire is removed. Is this common or do I need to replace wires. I tried to push the piece back in the wire but, I don't think it went back in like it should. Anyone else experience this?

Use dielectric grease on the plugs and boots. That will help getting them off next time without destroying them. Also twist the boots before pulling and pull on the boot not the wire
