Re: Glow plugs

Well I would replace ALL of them since they arent that expensive. You will need the special tool for pulling the glow plug harness so you dont damage it. You shouldnt need to remove the fender wells at all. The passenger side ones will be the hardest but you can get them out ok.

I went with these and I have about 9k miles on them so far and they seem to work really well and they are made in the USA FWIW.

Re: Glow plugs

hardest part is getting the cap off of them without breaking it, but just be a little patient and its not that big of a deal at all :)

Re: Glow plugs

Yea as mentioned just be careful with the harness. I highly recommend the special tool so you dont damage it.
