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

Wonder if the Boss would work, got to use it for something 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.
