Question about 2002 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
As stated by andersands, you are better off taking it to a garage for them to fix and letting them be responsible. I had the VERY SAME problem. Mine broke in the cylinder head and I was lucky enough to be able to do the work with my father-in-law AND find a machinist who could drill it out so I didn't have to buy a new head.
FYI, I now use anti-seize compound on all the glow plugs. I tighten them first by hand and then only an eighth of a turn with a wrench. They don't come out AND they haven't seized up at all since. They come out fine.

Please do not try and change yourself i tried and one broke off in the head it cost me 1900 dollars to rebuild the head
it broke because the aluminum head and the fine threads on the glowplugs fused together just take it in and let the garage be responsable if anything happends
