    Hi guys

    I'm wanting to change the glow plugs on my 2005 E280CDi. Is there a 'how to' guide on this anywhere please? I've done a search but had no luck.

    I do know that it should be attempted ONLY with the engine hot, so the plug don't snap when removing.

    I just need to know what parts I need to remove in engine so, I can get to the plugs.

    Many thanks

    Nick

    You also need a special glow plug socket to remove these. A standard 10mm wont do the trick.
