Fairly easy on driver's side as they are very visible. Just unplug the harness for each plug and set it above the plug. Use a deep well socket that fits the plug (use a new one to ensure you have the proper size) and remove the old ones. Apply some anti-seize to the threads of the new plugs before youput them in. This will help with removal in the future. Install all the new plugs and re-connect the plugs to the harness.

On the passenger side, you will need to remove the tire and the inner fender skirt to reach the back 2 plugs. Be sure you block the vehicle to prevent it from falling and do not rely on just the jack. Follow the same procedure as above and it should fire right up.

**Be sure to check each old plug to ensure that none of the tips melted or broke off in the cyclinder. It will be obvious if one is broke.**

Where is relay for heater glow plugs located


The relay is in easy view on the top of the motor, a little to the right side (passenger side). You will see two identical relays. One of them, the large battery cable goes to the intake air heater. The other relay is for your glow-plugs.

If I am Correct, This is not a Diesel Burning Car Right???? If not you will not have Glow Plugs. Glow Plugs were only Installed on Diesel Engines to Preheat the Motor Before Start.
