Hi

Does it still run?

If so.. then I would not rush into a repair

Will start fine on the other 3.. and you can drive anywhere for a repair if deemed necessary

Out of interest.. was it you who broke it.. how much preparation had you done ?

Re: Stuck/snapped glow plug DOBLO

Hi

No I didnít do it. It was booked it at an independent garage to diagnose which plugs were faulty, turns out 2 & 3 needed to be changed. So the garage bought all 4 and set about replacing them all.

He done number 2 first fine. Then started number 1. He said it was all going well then it snapped. He had heated the van first and lubricated as much as he could.

He hasnít attempted 3 and 4 as he is worried about them snapping off.

He told me to take the van and drive it and hopefully it will pop out. However other people have said that the plug could pop out and fall elsewhere and cause damage.

He is hoping a friend has the tool if not he will have to strip the engine costing £100s

There a firm called uk injector and glow plug removal on Facebook that specialises in this
Don't know what they charge however but worth a message
They have been well reviewed
