Evening all!

More urgent help needed.

Firstly-is it possible to confirm easily that glow plugs are definitely causing starting problems.I am 90% sure but not 100%.Lights come on but engine won't fire from cold.Battery ok.
Secondly where are glow plugs on BMW engine and can you give any tips on how to get plugs in and out.
Thirdly do all plugs need to be replaced.
Finally-where can I go to get plugs apart from main dealer.
Thanks on advance. it would be nice to use the car again without worrying about cold starts!

I can asnwer point 3/4.... You might as well replace them all because there about £5/6 each and saves future hassle

you can change the back 4 fairly easily , the front two require the manifold to be lifted slightly, I found that the plugs broke when I tried to undo the electric connections, pain in the bollix to solder on new crimps!
