    I posted on Jan 12 that the glow plugs on my Fiat were flashing off and on. I took it to Station Garage in Belper Derbys for them to remove the glow plugs but they were stuck fast. 2 snapped on removal so all have been replaced and all ok now. They did a first class job so I am well pleased.

    Glad it's fixed. What do you mean by snapped? How did they remove them?

    EDIT good old Utoob. How much did this cost all told?

    Sorry for the delay in replying I have man flu! Not sure how they were removed but 2 of them were broken
    about half way down. All 4 were replaced at a cost of just over £400.

    Ouch.......

    OE glow plugs approx £25 each
    Lucas plugs approx £32 per pack of 4.
    NGK plugs around same as Lucas.
    i doubt they wuld use genuine OE plugs if it isnt a main dealer.

    £300+ to remove broken ones and replace....

    Glzza job, i can do that.
