Question about 2005 Peugeot 405
I have a peugeot 206, 1.4 hdi 05 model and it is not starting, iv been told its the glowplugs and have goten new ones to replace the old but do not know how to change them.
If your not good at mechanicing I suggest you take the car to someone that is experenced.
The reason I say this that we have loads of cars into the workshop with glowpugs broken in the head of the engine with the result of us having to remove the cylinder head.
What happens is that the tip of the glowplug breaks in the head when being removed if it is not done properly.
There is a way that we have found that they can be removed easily without breaking them.
Firsty run the car engine until warm, then we pour a little Diesel fuel onto each plug & let them sit for 15mins or so.
Then we remove them with a deep socket 1/4" drive so we don't put to much pressure on them.
they should screw out easily but we turn them out 1 whole turn then back a 1/4 add a little more diesel ( thimble full) & gently screw them out.
If they start to get really tight screw in again a little then screw out again.
The nuts that hold on the wires just need to be nipped up with a small 8mm spanner, but do not over tighten.
