    Default East Midlands Stuck Glow Plugs

    Just had my 55 plate 3.0 v6 Estate in for a large service including glow plug change at stealers. They said 5 of the plugs were seized and would not come out. If they tried to force them they would snap. Was told if this happened they would need to send cylinder head away to have them drilled out and that the head would need to be skimmed etc. They said it could cost up to £2000
    I told them to leave the plugs as they are. Can anyone recommend somewhere in Linconlshire or Nottingham who does this at a more realistic price. I have had it 18 months and checked the service book and the glow plugs have never been changed by the 4 previous owners!!!!!!!!!!!

    Are the glow plugs faulty? If not why are you bothering to change them? Is it part of the service schedule?
