I have a problem and I need advice ! help ! direction !
I have a 2005 A Class Merc 180Cdi with 92000km on the clock which I bought from my BIL which he had since new. The engine management light came on two days after I took delivery and the computer said the glow plugs needs to be replaced, plugs 1 and 4 came out no problem but 2 & 3 is stuck like "k%k op n wol kombers ". After various attempts no luck, the head was then removed and send to the best auto engineering shop here in our area. They tried and said according to them they cannot get the glow plugs out. Now my next step is 1)to start looking for a secondhand head, 2) buy a new head ( which I cannot afford I think, haven't got a costing yet), 3) find a engineering shop that have preformed a similar operation .
Do anybody know any engineering shops that have been successful in removing stuck glow plugs from a merc diesel engine.
