I'm in need of some new glow plugs, having to use easy start in the morning to get it running first off.

Where is the best place for me to buy some from? Wanting to install them on Saturday. Is it worth buying the 'special' tool?

Local car parts place to me quoted £9.14 each, but could probably get them for under £9 because I know the guy. Was also going to buy the relay as well but not got a price on that.

Cheers,

Special tool!!!!!!!!! wish I had known that existed when I did mine, straight forward but fiddly, and that was on a hot sunny day. Wouldn't fancy trying out there at the moment, my fingers would fall off

What is this "Special tool" you speak of?

I just thought you need a bent spanner thing to get at one of the plugs and the rest was just standard tool box?
