Glow plugs

3 posts in this topic

Any tips on removing a broken glow plug.

One of mine snapped right off. Always that last one. 

Does anyone know what tool to get to remove it

This happened to friends in Cowichan Bay doing a DIY plug change, and in the end the dealer had to whip the head off.

 

I think there must be a way like a huge easy out....

i removed two broken ones with easy outs....the square kind not the spiral kind

 

the third one already had a broken easy out (the previous owner did a lot of damage trying to fix things himself)...for that one i had to use a very small diamond burr and a truckload of patience ....the threads got a bit damaged but it worked just fine because the actual seal is made much lower into the head
