    Default Glow plug location on 2.2 Diesel?

    Does anyone have a picture of the engine or know how easy the glow plugs are to get to on a 2.2 Vectra Diesel?

    A friend has asked me to take a look for him but I wont be seeing him (And the car) till Wednesday.

    They're on the back of the engine, between the turbo and rocker cover. Fairly easy to access but quite fiddly to remove. Beware though, they can crack in the head...
    I'd advise you to soak them in some sort of lube thing, or anti-rust stuff, before attempting to remove them.
