Number 8 Glow Plug

Just checking before i replace it, the #8 glow plug is the driver side closest to the firewall correct?

Also anyone have tips to make it easier to do, like taking something off or what not?

X2---I sprayed mine with PB Blaster,let it soak on both wire nut and actual GP.When you're ready to remove,I use CRC's Freeze off,comes in a light blue can--the very best rust breaker I've ever seen.If you're around 100K miles,you really should change all at once and be done with it as they will all eventually fail.

Yes,that's the name--ANTI-SIEZE,comes in a small light gray plastic bottle with a built in the cap brush.Also,put some di-electric grease on your wire nuts to keep rust away.

RoadFusion, your mechanic mentioned the Anti-Seize because you should apply to the threads of the new glow when you install them. You will use the PB blaster and possibly CRC FreezeOff to remove the old glow plugs. The job shouldn't be too bad for you. I have one of my 06 LBZ sitting here with a new set of glow plugs on my toolbox about to go in.

tuney...very good to hear someone used the CRC FreezeOff. I have a can here in the shop but have never once used it! I will give it a shot!

You will find the Freeze-off pretty amazing Mark,remember to use it only when you're actually ready for dis-assembly as that's the way it works,on a freezing principle,if you wait too long,the results won't be as good.Last Dec. I had PB Blaster soaking every day for 2 weeks on my Boss plow light hardware,could not loosen---I gave Freeze-off a shot and voila--off they came.The directions say also to bang your part your working on some to help the chemical reaction work better.
