I have a 55 plate Focus 1.8Tdci and I’m looking to replace the glow plugs as at least one isn’t working – lumpy starting when cold, fine when warm.

I’m fairly mechanically minded and have done glow plugs on a mid 90's Astra before. Should I disconnect the battery or can I get away without doing so? And is there anything else I need to lookout for?
