    I think the glowplugs themselves are £15 each, it's the cost of labour which is the main factor. I had 2 go in mine and I had the whole lot replaced for around £160 if I recall correctly.

    I was told by my local dealer aswell as a mechanic that it is a good idea to replace the relay as the same time? for the cost etc?

    Or maybe not?

    This unit is plug and play....if it ain't broke....don't fix it....I do spray a little bit of WD40 around the connectors once in a while though,to keep moisture away
