Glow Plug Replacement

The pic's and procedures in this forum are very detailed and well done.
Anyone have a write up on replacing glow plugs? My SES light is on and it's giving a P0675 (cylinder 5 glow plug circut).

Ever do spark plugs on a gas engine? Same thing just with a wire screwed on with a nut. Simple to do. If you never did them might be easiar to remove the inner fender first. Even if you did them before remiving the inner fender makes it simple.

Yes, I've done spark plugs plenty of times and I had heard to take the inner fender off for glow plugs. I was just hoping someone would tell me I didn't have to.

Inner fender only takes a minute or two to take off. No big deal

My dealer just called and said the small tip came off the glow plug and they must remove the head. Can this happen? and if the tip does break off must you remove the head?

Oh ya the inner fender is easy to get off! There are some push pins you have to remove. Usually a pair of electric or diagnle cutters make them easy to remove. Dont cut them just helps get under them.

When you put the inner fender back on does it stay tight? I just don't want it to be loose. Worried about that more than difficulty of removal.
Thanks.
