    Default Glow plugs change

    Hi folks, its time for my veccy to have its glow plugs changed due to it being a struggle to start in the mornings. Is there any precautions i can take to stop them snapping and having to fork out loads o cash to have them heli coiled out.

    The Vectra has a very good glow plug monitoring system
    What makes you think the glow plugs require replacing, rather than it being some other issue?

    They need replacing due to them being the same plugs for 113,000 miles and the eml light stays on for about 5 mins when i start the car, also its getting harder to start the car on cold mornings and the coil light on the dash stays on for longer now.
