Glow plug wont come out

I have a 2003 Laguna 1.9 dci Inititale. The garage wanted to remove a faulty Glow Plug but they couldn't remove it. They said that as its ceramic at the bottom it could shatter leading to more work - and at Renualts prices this could mean a remortgage!

Does anyone have any ideas how we can take out the Glow Plug safely?

Also, where has the thread gone about Laguna engine not starting when its hot? I have the same problem. The thread apparantly has moved - but where too?

I'd agree with Donald, try removal with the engine hot.

Also I'd get confirmation that the base of the glow plug is in fact ceramic.

I know things could be wildly different, but I'm looking now at a glowwy that came out of my old 2.2 RTDT Lag 1

PN on the box 77 00 861 906
GN 905

It certainly doesn't consist of any ceramics.

If the ceramic part breaks off,then it's a head off job to get it out!

The end of the plug expands and gets stuck in it's mounting hole,so as you undo the plug the tip breaks off........

lagdti Which bit of it is ceramic bit.

The one I'm looking at is used, but still kicking. The only bit that I can see that could possibly be ceramic is the electrode, but since this is only about half the diameter of the thread, I can't figure out how it gets stuck.
