Glow plugs location fiat 1.3 evo multijet diesel (2011)

Hi there,
First post here, simply to let share the location of the glow plugs with whoever may need. I couldn't find this info online for this specific model so I thought here is the place to have it


They're located in the front side of the engine between the engine block and the (little tini tiny) turbo. I had to replace one of them and luckily it was reachable without removing any major components.

(procedure as I made it)
- locate the plug
- give it some bolt removing spray
- drive the car for a couple of days
- give it some oil
- drive the car 3 days (~80 km/day)
- today wrenched the plug out with ease, inserted the new one with some copper grease.

(pictures) - EDIT: to be added after moderator permission

I need to look at at least 1 plug on my 1.3 GP,

at least they are a LOT more accessible than my old JTD

Re: Glow plugs location fiat 1.3 evo multijet diesel (2011)

Hi!
Yesterday I had them on my library but I was probably doing something wrong including them on the post; maybe cause I was adding their links instead of using the little cam icon.
OOPS it also didnt work, always returns the error that I can't include links yet. So I attached them directly from the laptop. You can also find the ones I meant on the Gallery. Sorry for the mess everyone





The pics are:
-Engine view with one panel already removed - the glow plug #4 is almost touching the turbo outlet pipe. the clearance with the O2 sensor is just enough for a small long socket 9 mm (if i can remember correctly)

- Connectors: We see two black connectors here, it's the one on the higher side of the pic, with the smooth-looking cable. It pops out easy, just push with your own hands (careful, hot exhausts...)

- The glow plug with removed connector... Marinating in some piri piri sauce

- Old and new glow plugs
