Changing glow plugs

It looks like the glow plugs need replaced on my Mrs Multipla (flashing glow plug light on dash), just how easy , or not are they to change on the Multipla? Anybody have any pics to guide me along the way?
Any help would be much appreciated

Re: Changing glow plugs

They are a pig to get a tool on,I gave up....bit the bullet and let the dealer do it...(1 hr labour).Turned out the electronic control relay was shot as well so would have still had an issue even if I'd managed to change the plugs.

Re: Changing glow plugs

I'd recommend buying a proper glow plug spanner (long, bent and ratchets) and a telescopic magnetic pickup (to collect the bits you will drop). Makes a swine of a job almost pleasurable.
