Re: doblo glow plugs

3&4 are easy, you just need an extended 12mm socket and it's just like changing spark plugs. No 2 is a little more difficult but with a bit of patience and a square drive extension you can do it. No 1 is a bigger task and will require the removal of the cam cover, coolant pipework and other associated equipment. Purchase all the required gaskets before starting the job because you really do not want to do it a second time for a leaking gasket.

Typical - what a bloody crock. And, of course, when d
are dodgy glowplugs most noticeable? wintertime.
so, you're out there in the freezing cold & you have to strip the bleedin' engine out just to get one poxy glowplug out.
Flipping ridiculous.

Re: doblo glow plugs

I guess the service CD will mean the two bolts on the outlet side of the EGR through the oblong flange of the stainless pipe (usually covered by heat resistant mesh) and/or the two bolts that hold the pipe into the cam cover. The pipe to cam cover bolts are a doddle and the EGR outlet bolts should not be too bad to remove with a suitable socket extension but it's certainly easier if you take off the black plastic air intake ducting and associated gubbins as it makes access very difficult.
