    Well worth replacing them. I did mine last year (2004 2.5tdi V6 allroad). 5 out of 6 of them were totally dead and did nothing when connected up to spare battery! Car was starting fine before but really fires up now! 1 of them was a total pain to get to, didn't have to remove anything to improve access but loads and loads of tiny turns with the socket set to unscrew it, can't remember which it was now, I think it was one of the ones nearer the front on the right - and it turned out to be the only 1 that didnt need changing!

    you can find which ones to get on eurocarparts.com they are about £12 each there. I acutally bought some bosch ones off ebay for a bit less about £40 for all 6 I think, no problem finding the right ones.


    Below is a copy off ELSA with details on how to change them:
