  1. This is how another member did it:- Thank you guys for your advice this is how i got it out the full tip was stuck in the head, what i did was to soak it in penetrating oil for 3 days, then i drilled out the old broken glo plug all the way through with a long 3.3mm drill bit, sawn off the tip where the wire fits onto, and i now had a home made guide ready for drilling out the stuck glo plug tip, after drilling out the tip i then tapped it with a 4mm extra long tap, i bought a piece of 200mm long 4mm threaded rod from ebay and screwed it into the broken glo plug then just pulled it out, this is a similar way to the very expensive tip extractor kits that are available,i used a another old plug and did the same but drilled it through with a 4.5mm drill bit so i could use that one as a guide for tapping the thread, i hope this helps and works for others. I will say that changing the glo plugs is not an easy job on a cmax 1.6 tdci, everything is hard to get to,you will need an angle drill to drill it out as there is no space for a normal drill,use a peck drilling method with plenty of cutting lubricant, dont rush or you might break the drill bit ,good luck.

  5. Take it back to where you bought from and get them to look at it, as it is unfit for purpose, even if they did not give you a warranty you are still covered under the sale of goods act.
  6. Quote from description. Wheel cover is designed to fit 16" steel wheels.
