    Glow Plug

    Forum Key Rings
    Hey Guys.
    Got a service now message, quick code check said Glow plug.

    just 1 of the 4.

    I have a 2014 SE ECOFLEX S/S 5DR CDTI 140BHP

    Mechanic had a quick look before i leave it in next week, thinks its the "expensive" glow plugs.

    Do all 4 have pressure sensors?

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Conor.

    As far as I know there is no rhyme nor reason to whether you have 1, 2, 3, or 4. The technical blurb for the biturbo says they have 4 which mine does, but I think @exclusive confirmed his old biturbo had 1 or 2. You can tell by looking at the top of the plug, the pressure sensor ones have a larger diameter top. 3 is normal 4 is with pressure sensor.

    i have a 61 plate 160 diesel, mine has 4 pressure sensor glow plugs, as mentioned above seems pretty random that some have different number of sensored plugs
    depending on which one is faulty, swap like for like

    The pressure sensor one I took off had GM55579436 manufactured by BERU with number 0103010904.
    Replacement part has GM number 55590467 and Beru number 0103010906. Superseded part numbers?
    When I was looking for one the GM part was €30 dearer and in stock, Beru one out of stock at any motor factors I tried and would have to wait a few days for one, it was last December so I sucked it up and bought GM to fit the same day it went.
    Pictures I took of new and old here:

    Thanks!

    Its a 10 minute job if you'd like to try it yourself. 12mm spanner will work but a long reach 12mm socket will make it a lot easier. (I think it was 12 anyway) The electrical plug pops off the top and its just out with the old and in with the new. Dont over tighten as they are fragile, be carefull not to drop it either as if it lands nose first it could break it. 10Nm torque which is very low.
