    Star says Glow Plug number 1 is open circuit on my daughter's W169 A180CDI year 2006. It has done 86K miles, and the question is, should I replace one or all four?

    Is it a difficult DIY job or should I leave it to the pros?

    Don't bother unless it's causing running problems, my wife's 180cdi has a faulty number one glow plug but to strip it down and then run the risk of shearing it off in the head...
