Glow Plug Removal Problem - Advice Requested!
I finally decided to renew the glow plugs on my '84 300SD and things
went smoothly until I came to the #1 plug. It wouldn't budge and I
wound up rounding off the darn thing. My glow plug light was working
intermittently, but hasn't lit up in some time.
Where should I go from here? Leave it and run on 4 new plugs? File
down the edges of the plug and hope to remove it?
By the way, I had also updated to the newer relay.
Any assistance greatly appreciated!
