Sheared Glow Plug

Recommended Posts

help required

I have a sheared glow plug in a 2004 d4d avensis, the glow plug is still installed but is twisted off center,my question is has anybody had this problem before and was it hard to fix ,i am not sure if the helicoil is gone or if its just the body of the glow plug that is sheared.

I will try to drill it out but if anyone has had this problem before, it would be a great help to know any potential pitfalls .

regards

Willie.

Ouch! Is there any way you can get it out? I've had a few go mad on me from other marques of cars! I've sprayed the hell out of them with WD40 and left them over night and managed to get them out in the morning. I always copper ease them whem I replace the plugs so they come out without any issues the next time...

Hello Sir!

Sharpened three square file, driven like wedge into plug body, release hot only. New plug thread cover with graphite powder and then only tighten. Thank you.
