Broken Glow plugs are very common on modern vehicles, they will usually either break at the top leaving the full glow plug in the cylinder head or they can appear to unscrew correctly but leave a bit of the glow plug tip stuck inside the head.
It is quite common for the tip of the glow plug to break on the following vehicles:
- Peugeot, Citroen and Ford vehicles fitted with the 1.6 DV6 engine
- Fiat and Vauxhall vehicles fitted with the 1.9L Fiat engine
- Mercedes Cdi engines
