View Full Version : glow plug caps

yes I am stupid, yes I am weak, but for the love of g*d I cannot take off the glow plug caps on my Audi A4 TDi 2.5 V6. I am a bit scared of tugging the damn things too hard as i don't want to break off any bits.I believe they are simply a push fit on to the top of the glow plug and I have tried using a pair of pliers to hold the caps while pulling them upwards.

How are you supposed to get the caps off the plugs in order to replace them?:aargh4:

Umm... I just thought it was a pull?

thanks Sonix. I will try just again with a more forceful pull on the cap, but it didn't show any sign of budging before.
