Default Glow Plugs on 1.6HDI, changed all 4 today

I have changed them on my previous 406 2.0HDI, is it much the same on 1.6HDI just covered up a bit more and are they on front of rear of the head.

That would be why I couldn't find them then, thanks!

What needs to be removed to change all, just air filter?

Also beleive the EGR valve is there too under the fuel filter, is that correct as I want to wip it out to give it a clean.

Yep. Get 'em all done while you can.

Found a pic of the back of the engine, looks like the 2 furthest from the cam belt arnt too hard , second one a bit harder but the first one looks like its quite hard to get to.
Is there any thing else I need to remove other than the air box?

I'm getting 4 new denso plugs for 40 from spares shop, is that the going price.

Dealer is 17+VAT each, and Eurocarparts about 13+VAT, so 40 for the lot isn't bad

Ive seen them and other things for sale cheaper on ebay, but Im always wary of buying stuff that could be either seconds/out of tollerence or are cheap quality.

got them done today, all four were dead!
Its a bit of a pain, but would be easyer to do again as I know how to do them now.
Few tips
You need a 1/4 drive long reach 10mm socket, and a normal 7mm.
The 7mm is for the nuts that hold the wires, put gease in the socket to hold the nut in when you remove and replace them.
Air box lower needs to have the plastic clip inside removed so you can split it and remove the 2 halfs.
