On your question. The glow plugs go into the head right near the injectors. The glow plugs have 2 different set ups on these engines. One is a buss bar that attaches all the glow plugs together and has the supply lead connected to one of them. The other is wired to each one in series. You need to remove the buss bar and wiring from them. Then it simply takes a deep well socket to remove them just like a spark plug. Then reverse order to install them. Please let me know if you have any follow up questions on this. Thank you.
