Glow Plug removal can seem straight forward but if the incorrect tools are used, the chances of breaking off the glow plug or damaging the cylinder head are greatly increased. These are the same tools we have used in house at Merchant Automotive.
Tool Kit Includes:
Glow Plug Removal Air Hammer Tip
Glow Plug Removal Socket (machined to specific depth)
Rust belt must have!, November 18, 2019 By Nate (WOODVILLE, WI)(Verified)
I'm from western WI where everything rusts due to winter road salt... I tried replacing the 4 passenger side glow plugs without this tool and was only able to get 2 out using reasonable torque on a 3/8" ratchet. I bought this kit and was able to get all 8 glow plugs out. I needed this on about 4 out of the 8 (142,000 miles on my 07 LBZ with some that had already been replaced) and it's cheap insurance instead of risking a broken one. I started at 20 psi and worked my way up the 60 psi. Need to hammer on them a bit with pressure on a 3/4" wrench and out the rusty ones came.

No glowplugs broke on a 300,000 mile Michigan truck. I can't say enough good things about this kit!

I should have researched before trying to replace glow plugs. I did remove one successfully, the second i broke off in the cylinder head. So after a little research i ordered the merchant removal tool, removed the remaining 6 glow plugs without issue. The broken plug took some effort but got it with some heat & ez out. Great tool guys

I call these guns ticklers, I was able to change all 8 glow plugs, but it took a while to break a few of them loose, just not alot of loosening power, I have 2 of these styles from harbor freight, they are the same, I was a tad disappointed that the tool for the gun didn't have a ball detent to hold sockets, they just fall off if you tip it down at all, especially in the engine bay, adds some frustration, but as I said, I was able to change all 8 glow plugs on my 160k mile LBZ here in the salt band.

great service. I ordered at three in the afternoon and received it by noon the next day. It worked well but stuck glow plugs are still a little scary.
