Glow Plug Tip Broke In Engine! 😭 Mk2 Focus 1.6 Tdci

06 June 2015 - 11:44 PM

Help please
Long story short...
I snapped a glowplug in the engine trying to remove it I have now got the best part of it out by using a locksmiths centering sleeve and drilling it then using a bolt extractor with a backwards thread to unscrew the glowplug from the head, my problem now it that the tip or the electrode it still in there.
I have tried long magnets and starting the engine to blow it out with the compression neither has worked I have read that removing the injector and trying to get it from there is a good idea but I cannot find any guides on how to remove the injector, I tried to remove it today only to fail and put it all back together.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks

12V Ignition Cable?

26 May 2015 - 06:47 PM

I'm looking to make a hidden 12v ignition live plug socket for my dashcam I have purchased this... http://pages.ebay.co...d=371330753374
And cut the plug off, I also have some scotch locks to tap into a wire, I also unscrewed the plug I already cut off and it has a fuse in it! Is this a problem? Because I assume the wire I'm tapping into is fused so it won't matter. Any help appreciated I have tried to tap the yellow/green wire going into the fuse box under the passenger footwell with no luck.
Thanks
