    The piggy tail light for the glow plug light, comes on whilst driving, once started it stays on for 10 seconds or so and does flash every couple of minutes , is this a known issue on the v6 diesel ? I'm sure it must be the glow plug relay, we're is it?
    Any help would be appreciated

    Where is the relay located? I assume you swapped it out yourself?

    Hi Mark, lift the plastic engine cover, right at the front top of the engine, there is a breather or something to the left, the relay is mounted on a small bracket, took only 10 mins, would suggest you use a magnet to stop screws from dropping into the engine lower cover, under the engine.
