It's my 2.4D T4 - wouldn't start today, failed glowplugs.

I changed them last year as I had the same problem - but didn't do no5 as it's behind the injector pump and bloody impossible.

Anyway - I can't get no3 out tonight sad The access is really bad and it seems to be totally seized, any bright ideas as to how to get the motherfucker out? How does a glowplug break if I over-torque it sad Will the flats just break off or will the whole neck break off??? Will I still have compression if I break the end off or will it leave a gaping hole??? sad

I'm so fucked off with this tonight, I really needed it fixed without bother this evening.

Did I just do them up too tight last year or can this just happen sad

for a start get a load of wd40 or something round it . keep wackin it on every hour or as much as you can be arsed and try again tomorrow , you can check that plaug without takin it out , take the real or wile off it and stick a wire from the batray + and see if its drawin power ., not ideal i no and worth doing um all at once if you keepin it .
barry will no more about the snapping off ishow .. good luck mate .

Yeah, I bought some more when I got the plugs - just in case - I'm glad I did!

I'd used mine up on an old lawnmower sometime last year Embarassed

Best case scenario I've got 4/5 plugs working - worst case 2/5 sad

I think I might have to strip the front off the van and get the injector pump/pipes off before next winter - do the job properly for a change.

Well I only managed to change one plug last night, but this morning it started right off the key first try, as soon as I cranked it - go figure.

Happy Happy, Joy Joy

(will still do the job properly another day)

Don't think so - does it make a difference?

If it's a ally head you maybe able to run it for a few min's
to warm the head up a bit to get it to expand a bit to make it easy'r to undo the glo plug.
as for easy start if your stuck without any cheep after shave works. wink lol

Didn't bother mate - I changed one duff one and it's been working fine since then - did loads of research on VZi and elsewhere and if I broke the plug then the engine has to come out to fix it :eek:

Decided to leave well alone unless I have a problem in the future.

When the cambelt is due again I'll take the pump and pipes off so I can get on the plugs really well and do them all then.
