    One of my glow plugs has died on my 240D, these are the old series wired glow plugs so when one goes they all go. I am having some trouble getting hold of a replacement quickly so i wondered if it would do any damage if I missed the dead one out when I put the wiring bars back.

    Anyone know if this would cause a problem?.

    Have you tried going to a main dealer? They could probably get you one from Germany within 3 days. Prices are usually quite reasonable.
