i have a 1995 E300 and the glow plugs seem to be welded in place at the factory!
They are impossible to get at and impossible to remove. I got a quote from "Page Auto" in Green Bay, Wis. $500 minimum and if any break off they would call me if it exceeds $2000.00!
How crazy is that?
I love my car but I am living with dead glow plugs and have to plug the engine heater in all winter long just to get it started. Very poor design by Mercedes.
