    Angry Advice needed please

    Hello everybody this is my first post but i have used this site quite alot and it has some very good advice on here and has helped me alot so thanks guy.

    i drive a vectra c 2.0dti on 52 reg

    I couldn't find anyone who was dumb enough to do what i have.....i had the spanner coming on in morning so did some reading up and it seems tht is was either water on the diesel filter or the glow plugs...then it came to this sunday morning and it was a none starter as with all the cold weather at the min...... so i went and got some glowplugs and tried to fit them and i took the first 3 out and replace the first 2 and on the 3rd i wasn't watching what i was doing and snap.....

    Now i have half a glow plug in my engine and it start worst then ever..... sounds like it gonna blow. does anyone have any advice at all on how to get this out? there is nothing to grab but there is a whole in the middle.

    Thanks in advance

    Wait for other replys but ive all ways been told never ever snap a glowplug even my bro who works at ATS let the dealers do his in case one snapped.Some members are braver than other's and manage to do it quite easy but there is all ways a chance that one will just no budge then snap !


    Some one here may know away to get it out easy just wait a while and see

    I'd try the easyout first, worst comes to the worst the head has to come off! Be careful, nothing to lose.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
