    Paranoia with glow plugs

    Really paranoid about changing my glow plugs for fear of them snapping. Any one got any useful tips i.e. lots of wd40 and get the engine warm? Or aren't they known for snapping on the pd130 engine??

    Paranoia with glow plugs

    Wd40 them the day before you change them and when you change them do them with a hot engine as this makes them easier to undo just be careful and don't go mad tightening them up
