Here's a photo trial from a sucessful glow plug controller (relay) change on the 4.0 V8 diesel.
GL420Cdi, ML420Cdi and, no doubt, the S420Cdi.

When the job was done in Jan 08, it was reported that they were all...

(I don't want to take it to a garage)
Had two seized glow plugs in my 98 300TD
Got them removed at Price engineering (see link below)
Two plugs took 2.5 hours to remove. Price engineering have developed special tools to reduce drilling.
Don't waste your money buying drilling and cutting tools and risk damaging your...
