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:

  • Air Hammer
  • Air Nipple
  • Glow Plug Removal Air Hammer Tip
  • Glow Plug Removal Socket (machined to specific depth)

Works Flawlessly

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

This tool made removing of glow plugs a breeze.

Rust belt must have!

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 3/8inch 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 3/4inch wrench and out the rusty ones came.

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.

Strong and Solid

Tool is not name brand but feels solid piped the glow plug right out made it fast and easy

Used part

only problem is I received a used tool that someone has already used. It has wear marks on it. I have yet to try it out and if it works fine I guess it’s not a big deal but just was not excepting to receive a tool that looks used.
