    Angry Remove Broken Glowplug

    Well decided to change glow plugs today and the 1st glowplug i try to change has snapped off , did all the usual things - heated the engine up,sprayed all the plugs with plusgas endless times and with hardly any pressure it snapped clean off

    Any idea's how to remove it. Spoke to a local engineering firm and their quoting £750 to remove the head and get it out

    I cant afford that so hopefully you guys have some idea's

    The way things are at the minute mate i cant afford to keep paying out on it, ive spent about £400 on it in the past couple of months getting it serviced, mot'd etc so i'm seriously thinking about getting rid as there's no way i can afford a £750 repair bill
