    Cool Veccy 2.0DTI glow plug caps

    Hi guys,

    I'm going to fit new glow plugs to my car, I know it's best to do it when the engine is warm & to be gentle so you don't snap the heads off but does anyone have any tips on how to easily remove the glow plug caps (black bits on top of the plugs with wires coming out), I have unscrewed the black plastic thing that all the cables go into but I've got bit cumbersome fingers & I just can't seem to get the caps off very well.
    Cheers
