    On the 602/3 engines it just bolts onto the block.
    A new gasket will be required.

    do you mean a "dead" glowplug or a physical broken/snapped one?

    if its just dead you can remove the plug without removing the filter housing. Get a bendy socket attachment and its accessable fairly easily.

    Fully agree with the above statement, I changed all of mine on my OM603 with the inlet manifold still in place.
    Use 1/4 inch drive ratchets etc and there is room to get at them all,the rearmost ones need throttle mechanism cable tied open to give access but all in it is an easy job,well mine was as they all came out as if they had only been fitted the day before but I guess I was just lucky.
    Do get the engine part warm as it helps them come out much easier .

    I am afraid it's broke off flush where the hex head was but the core is still there with the wire still plugged on,, only bought car and went to change the glowplugs and this is what I discovered . Never took a broken one out so a bit frightened.. Can't even find anyone to take the responsibility of taking the job on.
