Thanks in advance
I don't have a good clear engine picture handy, they are deep in the engine, from the injectors look inwards to the V centre, so LH bank they are RH of the injectors and RH bank they are LH of the injectors, and you will see a wire (looks like a hose) going to the top of each one, pull each one off to expose the long glow plugs,
BE WARNED they have a tendency to break on removal, (which is a head off job!!) spray plenty of loosening agent and use small tools to feel the force you are applying, no large breaker bars or anything crazy!!
is it weak at starting? or white smoke cold or both?
