Focus 06 Plate 1.6 Tdci

1 post in this topic

Hi all,

I don't know my way around a Diesel Engine and was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of the glow plugs. The car is going in tomorrow for an Diesel Particle Filter (DPF) Regen but the local garage is fearful of snapping the glow plugs when removing them as they had the same problem on another Focus.

I was going to soak them in WD40 best I could today and have also been advised that it is best to try removing them when the engine is at full temp. I don't have the time to do the glow plugs myself but just trying to ensure I don't end up with a huge garage bill for removing the head to get the sheared plugs out.

I have attached a pic of the engine and I have circled what I believe is the injectors. Any help would be grateful. Perhaps another pic or annotate mine would be great

Thanks in advance.
