    Default removed a bar from under the glow plugs

    Hey guys, I removed a bar from under the glow plugs on my 150. It looks as though it was linked to 4 round plugs? It has 4 blacks rubber gromets on it which seem to hold it in place but they have worn out. I remember a member on here fixed theirs for a few pence about a year ago but I can't find the thread. He bought the rubbers from a hardware store wickes b&q etc. Please help someone thanks.

    you can try the cheap fix but i'll guarantee you'll need a new inlet manifold

    prepare to be £400 lighter

    og £700 if you include actuator

    sorry

    The cheap fix will be only temporary but certainly worth a try. Are you mechanically minded, its not a huge, huge job to do yourself and will save quite a few ££££!

    true as long as all swirls are still functional

    one of mine was pooped from the off so no chance

    try moving swirls 1, 2 and 4 with a long socket and bar

    if they move freely you might get away with it

    but then they might still move and be damaged

    only real soln is to save

    priced one up a couple of weeks ago and iirc it came in at under £400 inc the actuator
