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)

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.
