Actually asking this question for my Dad that owns a '87 300D.

He has been trying to figure out how to replace the glow plugs without having to remove the exhaust manifold. He's evidently having problems with the back 4 that he can't reach. Is there anyway around completely removing the manifold to get at them?

Also as a note he has had the recall done on the trap oxidizer which means he has the new redesigned manifold on there. Don't know if this has contributed to his problems or not.

Thanks for any responses/help for a newbie.

The glow plugs are under the INTAKE manifold. I have two special sockets that I use to do this job, and yes I do it without intake removal.

What exactly would the "special" socket be? He can get hold of just about any "special" tool in a day.

Yup ... forgot to say that it was the INTAKE manifold. My bad on that one. Forgot it wraps over the valve cover.

Thanks for the info.
