Default Glow plugs

Car hasnt been starting well these past few weeks. I changed the battery today and have 4 beru glow plugs I'd like to change.

Had a quick look through the haynes manual and it seems like quite a task. Should I undertake it or just leave it to the mechanic. Doest seem too hard though, any of you guys undertaken glow plug change. Im driving a 307 1.4hdi....

Changed them on 407. Posted the pitfalls on here. A member put his into a garage to fit and they broke three, then wanted to charge him for head removal to get them out. Do it yourself, i will help you with info

first they can stick in situ do to carbon build up and swelling. Get the engine hot first, its uncomfortable but the plugs will have an expanded hole to move in. Turn them slowly you may hear them scrunching as they are tight in the bore, back off and free them then try some more, be patient it may take awhile to get them free. If you rush they may snap. You can try wd40 but the part that is in trouble is low down the hole and i don't think the stuff can reach that far. If you are unfortunate to break one you will need to drift it back in 4-5mm then start up and blow it out.

If you do blow one out stand clear they come out like a bullet. Also the hole for the tip is smaller bore than the body is so make a drift using your new plugs as patterns, Brad

I'm thinking, do you need to change them? The poor starting may have been down to the battery/starter drain. May pay to check them with multimeter as they could be ok and you will give yourself grief for nowt

where do i check the starter for a drain as i am having the dreaded cold start issues too....and i have a new battery and fully functioning alternator. It's been recommended that i change to a more powerful starter but im reluctant too as i couldn't see how this would stop the battery draining overnight.....Do starters even drain battery's if they start going tits up.....
