Broken glow plug


Recommended Posts

I'm giving the top end of my 300tdi a refurb, but one of the glow plugs has broken off, about 40mm in. I have tried tapping it out while the head is off, but its absolutely solid. The bore seems to be a taper fit. Is leaving it in likely to cause any damage, or will it remove itself when the head is hot and compression in the cylinder persuades it to leave?
