This might sound like a stupid question, but if anyone has a MK3 Tdci130, would you have a look in the fusebox next to the battery, and tell me if fuse F3 is present? Apparently, this is the glow plug fuse. However, mine is missing! Strangely, I've had the car for nearly 4 years, and not had any problem starting from cold, apart from the DMF falling to pieces and clogging the starter.
Does this fuse actually have anything to do with the glow plugs???

Have something to contribute?

Thanks guys, the glow plugs must be on a different fuse then.
