Hey guys. My compression tester came today and it looks like I can only do it through the glow plugs. Just after some advice before I get to it. I've seen them while I had the manifold off but was wondering if I can get them out without removing the egr assembly out of the way.

I've been told a wire is held on the end of each on with a bit and then I can remove them. Is there a certain tool or just a socket?

I hav'nt taken them off your engine but loads others...there wil be a small nut holding on the power /link wire 4/5/6mm and use a deep socket to remove the heater plugs...they will be tight...get on them straight but if one shears..you will be in a world of pain...probably better to take out off a warm engine and copious amount of wd40...best of luck

You can get them off but its not much fun due to their location nuts holding wires on are tiny 8mm or 7mm hex and easily lost

I have never really removed them on these engines never had the need but have removed them on 1.9 dci engines never really had any problems just take it slow if they are tight turn them in and out to free off the threads

Thanks. As it's quite easy to do I always remove the 2 piece scuttle under the windscreen for better access. I've also decided to remove the egr assembly. Should make things a lot easier.

Don't over tighten eithet when putting back.
Think should only be 10 Newton metres.

Managed to get the plugs out without too much trouble but I can't get the compression adapter to screw in. I would have thought it's the one on the left in the pic but here are the 2 that look viable. Thought I'd get some advice before I force or thread anything.

Ps: I have a 17 piece universal kit so it's nothing special but I'm surprised the thread doesn't fit. I was looking at a nice sealey kit before and it said mine is number 22. But that's about it. I hope I haven't stripped it all down to not have the right part

That's what I thought. I'm not sure if it's because it's a cheap set but it only tightens in about half a turn. I tried it on the first port and got about a turn on the socket then it went loose and won't tighten into that one at all now. The thread is fine as I re tested it with the glowplug but the tool it's self must be a fraction wide or something.

I'm tempted to try the others with a half turn holding it in but I don't want it popping out and smashing my windscreen or giving false readings.

Maybe I need to get one of these?
