1.8L glow plugs

Tools needed are minimal just a 12mm deep, a magnetic pickup long needs nose and a long flatblade driver.

The small round nuts that hold the bar in place accept the flat blade. If you don't want to loose the just have a magnetic tool handy. This also helps with installation. The plugs come out very easy even if swollen they tip is not a tight fit.

Here is a trick. There are very small lock washers which are installed first, then the flat washers, then the bar, and last the round nuts. At least that's how mine were installed. The socket will not fit over the plug with the flat washers installed so they need to be removed before loosening. When installing place the small washers on the glow plugs before installing the plugs because you cannot get them on once the plugs are in. Using the needle nose for the bigger washers works well. I finished by holding the round nuts with the magnetic tool and screwing them down.
