    After it starts does the spanner light go out and stay out if you restart the car?

    If so it probably is a duff glowplug

    Oooh someone else with the same problem as me.
    Lets hope yours doesnt turn into a 3 week stay with Vx with it coming home still not fixed (long story)
    But Id go with the simplest thing first.. Plugs.
