J.J.& A Racing makes the perfect tool for it. i bought one cause i had 3 swollen stuck plugs and the way theyr tool works makes it a breeze. its well worth the $100 in my book.

google " J.J.& A Racing glow plug removal tool"

basically you unthread the glow plug slip the tool onto the glow plug and it apply s even outward pulling pressure to it. the glow plug dosent turn the tool dose.

Recently got the pleasure of this task for myself after reading about it for years.

1) Remove the small injection line retainer screw.

2) Remove the injection line nuts from offending cylinder and cylinder that shares injection line couple from the injectors.

3) Remove injector return lines from offending cylinder's injector.

4) Remove the injector from the cylinder.

5) Observe swollen glow plug tip (feel in there with your finger and also you can see it with a light).

6) Unscrew the plug as far as it will unscrew.

7) Take a piece of napkin/shop towel and shove it in the injector hole inside of the precup so that it is underneath the glowplug and plugs the precup opening's hole into the cylinder.

8) Take a pair of pliers and grab the body of the loose glow plug and bend the glow plug forcefully (you're trying to bend this like you would a piece of wire until it breaks off).

9) After glow plug body breaks off of it's tip, push the glow plug tip inside the precup chamber with a screw driver or piece of wire via the glow plug hole.

10) Retrieve loose glow plug tip from the precup injector opening with a slender pair of needle nose pliers.

11) Retrieve your piece of paper towel from the cylinder.

12) Vaccum out the precup if you have fragments.

13) Blow out the injector hole opening and glow plug openings to remove sut, install injector and glow plug.

14) Re-install return lines and injector lines and injector line retaining screw.

That's it.

Also try Leroy's glowplug removal tool. Works good, and cheaper.

I like the military way myself. Snap it off, put a new one in and listen to it exit when you start it up. Probably not a good way with a turbo.
