Hi guys 0
was replacing the DMF on my vectra this last weekend and carried out a general service too, have been having the "spannerlight" on first thing in the mornings which is indicative of the glowplugs failing. I changed three no problem, but the fourth (no1 cylinder nearest the cambelt) sheared off at what looks to be just below the thread, I have a solid core protruding from the hole, and to the best of my knowledge the plug does not seem to be leaking, went around to the local garage and they said leave well alone, is it ok to run on three plugs?
Can any of youguys advise me on what best to do, Is taking the head off a big job? I have a CAM locking tool set for changing the timing belt -I did this 3 months ago so would be a new belt still?
Is it possible to sicessfully repair the head or will it be a new one?
